We were very impressed with the creative and protective shipment packaging, and then when we opened it we were again surprised by the clever way the 2 mirrors were protected face to face. When we separated them, we were disheartened to see the distorted and wrinkly surface, UNTIL we read the little tag that said to remove the protective cover. Whew! And then our eyes popped at the surprising clarity of the wonderful finish. This is expertly engineered for use as well as for shipping. We had wondered if we would get our money's worth, and boy, we surely have. Thank you for the great job. Oh, and the delivery guy was great, too. He called a couple times and then actually helped us put the big package where we needed it. That was unexpected and delighted us two old folks. Thank you!
