    The glass is beveled, no marks as far as makers marks. I'm having trouble uploading photos

    Odd thing. I do think it a dressing mirror and European in origin. Would think early 20th century. Wonder why the legs on the wing mirrors don't touch the floor? :confused:

    You may be right on European (not English) but many English and some European side mirrors of the 19thc and early 20thc swivelled to give a "3D" (side/back) reflection. It's probable you already knew this and possible I misinterpreted your post.

    How
    Does one go about finding it where it might have originated? I bought it for 135 from a lady who bought it at an estate sale.

    With verybrad. The French were fond of triple dressing mirrors/screens and I've seen a couple 19thC with gilt brass frames of varying designs but not a wooden one (even English) of this configuration although the decoration on the arches with the ribbon cross is reminiscent of the gesso decoration on some of their 19thC wall mirrors interspersed with ribbon bows. I've looked for Belgian and Dutch but this type of mirror doesn't appear to have been their thing. There are some varying types here both English and French that might open up an avenue of search for your unusual piece. https://www.google.com/search?q=ear...1560&client=opera&hs=jFO#imgrc=LBFzwKZduGRA6M
