This is a dainty and well finished, but quite modest looking mirror with little embellishment - the type of mirror one would imagine that Princess Sophie would have received as a courting gift upon her arrival in Russia to meet with Peter III and become engaged. From the simple, more humble background that Sophie came from, a mirror of this style would have been a cherished gift.
As she matured into Catherine the Great, it is a mirror she would have kept to remind her of the start to her rise to power in the Russian Courts. The tumultuous relationship and rocky political scene that awaited her would have been far less serene than the images of bucolic life that such a gift would have generated in her young mind. A mirror that is both unassuming and simple, as well as capable of being complex and mysterious and full of bold, powerful presence.
