I simply love the 2nd from top trumeau - it is elegant ..beautiful...& Oh so French!! That's a lovely new word "trumeau".

Every time I see one now, I want to weep.
I had a very nice Trumeau mirror, the painting was a mother and child and my little girl ( at the time) said the painting was of the two of us.
Sadly, that mirror that has traveled with us all over for over 30 years, was broken , irreparably in our move to Argentina.
But I do love them and will keep an eye out for a new/old one here ..
I especially love the 5th one down .

They are all so exquisite. I could not possibly decide. I have fallen in love with all of them. Each trumeau is unique and beautiful. They have taken my breath away.
Exquisite. I look forward to hearing which one you are considering.

design of the #5,but all of them are so beautiful!!!

No. THREE
without a doubt.
Carved wood? Not stucco?
Original painting?
I'll take it!

Hi Colette,
Thank you for stopping by my blog and your kind words. I'm so glad to have found you as well! I tried to send you an email but I'm afraid the email address I had for you wasn't working. As for the mirror, I'll cast my vote for trumeau #3 - loving the painted finish. ~Susan
