Once the essential vanity topper, hand mirrors have become almost obsolete—quaint relics to prop on a dresser or cluster on a wall. But for those who like to sit and reflect à la fairy-tale stepmothers and mermaids, hand mirrors are starting to make a comeback in a sleek new guise. These eight are perfect for start-of-the year self scrutiny. Above: New York design studio Good Thing makes its  Utility Mirror  by polishing stainless steel to a mirror sheen and dipping it in industrial rubber for a colorful grip. Available in five colors, they're $50 each. Above: The Reflection Hand Mirror  is rimmed in matte black metal and has a sheesham wood handle; $19.95 from CB2. Above: The freestanding  Maru Hand Mirror by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio of Seattle is backed in brass and mounted on a handle made of brass (shown), copper, or aluminum with a wood core. It's 14 inches tall and available for $325 in the materials shown from A+R Store. Above: Berlin multimedia artist Sarah Illenger's  Ping Pong mirror is made of wood and acrylic glass; €120 ($144.82). Above: Another standing design, the BoConcept Hand Mirror has a maple handle and is 13 1/2 inches tall; $29 from BoConcept. Above: A clean-lined classic, Brook Farm General Store's 9.5-inch-tall  Hand Mirror is made in Germany of waxed beechwood; $35. Above: The aluminum  Mirror Mirror by Danish design studio Hay is $82 from Finnish Design Shop. It's also available in a round version in copper  for $82. And Mjolk in Toronto offers the circular Mirror Mirror  in brass for $85 CAD ($72.41 USD).
