I've got an antique full-length tilting mirror. I don't know much about it, but I'm trying to find parts for it. Where should I look? As you can see from the picture, the bolt that makes the mirrors tilt is broken. I'm wondering if there is a way I can find a replacement. Also would like to know the provenience of the item if possible.
I'll be happy to wait. Thanks for asking.
Yes. Please keep searching.

I cannot give you the provenience of the Mirror without a makers name. These were made by hundreds of furniture companies, and still are made today. This one appears to be Victorian Era Mahogany Cheval Mirror. The very best place to purchase replacement parts for these antique mirrors is here: http://www.antique-hardware.com/Mirror_Parts?gclid=CKes4OCX87YCFYOK4AodVCAA7g They have an excellent stock of every thing you can imagine. You will probably have to purchase a pair so they match completely.

Is there no hope of getting a replacement to match the other?
The only way you might find the original one is to find one being sold on Ebay, or you can contact this site I included send them an email picture of yours and they may have one to match, that they have collected from past jobs. They have a lot of them that look very much like yours.
