20 137 180

A superb aesthetic movement over mantel mirror circa 1880.

This is a rare example. The type of mirror was made in Britain during the 1870s and 1880s, when the aesthetic movement flourished. The artists and craftspeople championing this style valued pure beauty, and placed great emphasis on the visual and sensual qualities of art and design. You can see this in the fine workmanship of this mirror, and in the delicate details of the hand painted panel at the top.

Features:

  • Black lacquered wood with gilt highlights
  • Three shelves on either side, designed to display ornaments
  • A beautiful and highly detailed hand painted panel, depicting flowers and birds
  • Original glass with subtle signs of age
  • The wooden frame has recently been refurbished
  • Fixes easily to the wall

AGE:
Circa 1880

DIMENSIONS:
180 cm high, 137 cm wide, 20 cm deep (shelves).

CONDITION:
Excellent: The mirror is in excellent condition and has been recently refurbished. The glass shows subtle signs of age, which adds to its charm. One spindle is odd and does not match the others, please see photos for details.

I’ve never been a fan of vintage / second hand shopping until I walked into Greystones Antiques. The products are in immaculate condition and all so beautiful - I went to pick up one chair but honestly I was overwhelmed with how much I wanted to buy (and left with much more than I expected to)!!!

Amazing and friendly service. I purchased a 1930's Vanity Dressing Table and Mirror. The delivery was easy and this piece is exactly what I was looking for. It's in amazing condition and it was a very fair price!
