 Was there ever an appraisal made on this? My Grandmother gave me the same mirror, and i'm just trying to get information on it. Wanting to know what it is made of, who made it. I'd love to know.

Items like this silver mirror without any markings to indicate the silver content are silver plated. Depending on the country of origin European examples that are silver will have "Hallmarks" to indicate where it was made , silver content and maker. North American examples tend to be marked "Sterling" or "925" both markings indicating a silver content of 92.5%. These mirrors were generic items made during the late 19th century, usually part of a larger vanity set. On it's own these silver plated mirrors often sell for under $40.00.
