It was an antique mirror that served as a backdrop for the first-ever, live-action version of “A Streetcar Named Desire,” the TV show that chronicled the life of a woman named Marie Antoinette in Paris.
The mirror is on display at the Antiques Row in New York City.
It’s one of the more colorful and unique antiques in the world, said Elizabeth Cairncross, an antique expert who runs the Antique Corner in New Orleans, a museum that’s been showing off the mirror since 2013.
“It’s not the most beautiful mirror in the house, but it’s the most unique and beautiful mirror,” she said.
The mirror in question is from the collection of the Smithsonian Institution, according to the Smithsonian.
The Antique Row is also a museum, so the mirror is owned by the Smithsonian and is on loan to the museum.
Cairncrofts said she’s seen the mirror in person for the past five years.
“[Marie Antoinettes] was a very, very beautiful woman, and she had a very big mirror that was on the wall of her home, so we have this little mirror,” Cairncross said.
We don’t know how much it cost her.
We don’t even know if she used it, because it was a different time.
We only know it was the same one, but that was the first one I’ve seen.
So, it’s not something we’re going to be able to say.
“The mirror was one of many pieces from the Antilles that were sold during the auction.
The antique mirror in New London, Massachusetts, sold at the auction for $5,000.
The auctioneer says the mirror “was a large, antique mirror” with a gold, rosewood-plated, silver-framed glass base that was found in New England in the 1800s.
It is one of several pieces that were on display in the auction, along with a collection of antique rocking horses, antique wall mirrors, a carved silver pendant and a carved gold and silver chain necklace, the New London Register reports.
