This answer was rated:

I have a bright copper framed oblong wall mirror 240 x 335mm. Heavily ornate embossed copper decoration including cherubs and mermaids and surmounted with a coronet marked with an A. A poetic line written across the top is from Sir William Davenant (English 17th century poet). Awake Awake the morn shall never rise till she can dress her beauty with your eyes. Velvet backing approx 20mm deep. I am having trouble attaching a photo !

My name is ***** ***** I would love to help.

Got it, thanks! I will work on the answer and be back in a bit. No need to sit by the computer, you will get an email when I respond again.

This is an art nouveau period copper repousse mirror made circa 1890-1910 on the cusp of the Arts and Crafts period when copper was just beginning to be used as a decorative element. This is a bit of a mixture of the styles. The piece is British, maker unknown. The value of this piece is $300 to $400USD or $200GBP to $275GBP.
