Small mirrors fixed to dressing-tables will only require one pillar (452:6) screwed to the carcass back, with the mirror supported by a friction stay. The mirror can be released by pressing the forked arms (452:6A) together, and lifting the top plates off their pivots. Larger cheval-type mirrors will require two pillars (452:7), with a stronger stay (452:8) in which the wing arm is secured with a wing nut. The edges of the plywood backs used for mounting these mirrors can be masked with thick poster paint, coloured to match the wood finish and then polished in the usual manner.
