Double-Take: Horchow vs. Threshold

It's time for another double-take, where we take one item from Tar-shay and match it up against a lookalike - yet more expensive - designer piece.  Today we have two stylish lattice-pattern mirrors.  The only difference - besides the fact that one is dark navy and has and extra little doo-dad at the top, while the other is black and does not - is about $500.  Because one is by Horchow and will set you back $525, whereas the other is by Threshold (at Target) and will cost you just under $30.  Which one is which?  The answer appears in the comments section below.

The mirror on the left is the pricey one from Horchow, and the one on the right is the more wallet-friendly version from Threshold.

Just a note, the Horchow one is over twice the size of the Target one.

Thanks, Valerie; I hadn't noticed that fact :-)

Are both mirrors made of metal?

Always Chic: according to the product descriptions, the Horchow one is "painted resin" and the Target one is "painted plastic". Neither are made of metal - sorry.
