The mirror that belonged to Captain Edward John Smith is expected to sell for over $12,000

The notable memento was left on the chief's dressing table at his home in Stoke-on-Trent, England when the disastrous vessel set out on its first venture over the Atlantic in 1912.

It was later taken by one of his workers - a cleaning specialist named Ethelwynne - in leiu of the wages she was owed. As indicated by a letter written by her sister-in-law Hilda be that as it may, the mirror had gone up against something of its very own real existence and the skipper's picture would frequently show up in the glass.

"She [Ethelwynne] dependably scared me when she said that on occasion, she could even now observe Captain Smith's face in it on the commemoration of when the Titanic was sunk," Hilda composed.

The mirror is set to be sold for a sizable aggregate at Richard Winterton Auctioneers in December.

"The last time Captain Edward John Smith saw his own honorable, unshaven look before leaving home to take control of the Titanic was perhaps in this very mirror," said barker Richard Winterton.

"Indeed, even with one's feet immovably ashore and in the daylight of an unmistakable evening, there is something powerful about observing your very own appearance in such a question."
