CONDITION:

Newly restored/furbished:

Originally a medium varnished oak, I have painted with two coats of wood primer and undercoat, 2 coats of Victorian white Wickes Chalk Paint, clear waxed with beeswax and dark waxed in Annie Sloan.  Although the paint was white, the dark wax now gives it a predominant neutral cream colour.


Please note there is a hairline paint crack at the right of the mirror frame where it has been bonded together with Carpenter's Wood Glue Max - it is sturdy but there is a slight fraction of movement (see photo 5).


Collection Only - You are welcome to come and view - I am based in Bulkington, Bedworth (CV12), near Nuneaton and Coventry.


STYLE:

After doing some research, I have found that this piece of antique furniture is believed to be late 18th/early 19th century, solid oak and was a former mirror top to an antique sideboard.  It is now perfect as an over mantle/fireplace mirror, or someone may want to add coat hooks along the bottom, or wall mount it above coat hooks.  It also be sued as a gentleman's tie mirror. 


I have lovingly hand painted it with two coats of wood primer and undercoat for more durability, then painted in 2 coats of chalk paint, clear waxed with beeswax and dark waxed using Annie Sloan for a further vintage yet modern look and further enhancing a subtle antique look in all crevices - particularly around the intricate rose detail.  It also beautifully brings attention to the brushstrokes for texture. 


It can be distressed on the corners and edges by the new owner for a shabby chic look, but as this is not everyone's taste I have decided not to sand.


I have also replaced some tack nails/pins at the top of the rear backing and please also note due to age, there are some black spots and marks on the mirror that are from the mirror's backing.


The mirror itself is oval shaped and approximately measures W15.5" x 7.5". 


The mirror as a whole measures:

Width 41.5"

Height at highest point in middle 10.5"
Height either end 5"


It can best rested on a fireplace, leaning on the wall, if the bottom wall mountable hooks are unscrewed off or mounted to the wall (note the hooks have also been painted). 


Please note the rear has only one coat of chalk paint with no primer and basecoat as no one will see this side.




Measurements Taken

Most measurements are in inches unless stated otherwise and are approximately taken. All garments are measured while laid flat. If there is any natural give, they are gently stretched. Where possible, stretched and unstretched measurements are given, eg. Elasticated garments.

 

You must not rely on the sizing stated as all designer's sizes differ and you must compare measurements to your own and current garments you wear to avoid disappointment.

  • Bust measurements are taken Armpit to Armpit.
  • Chest measurements are taken Armpit to Armpit.
  • Waist measurements are taken at the narrowest point below bust
  • Hips are taken at the widest point just below waist.
  • Sleeve Lengths are taken under the arm at the armpit where all seams meet and are measured along the sleeve to the hem and are not stretched.
  • Shoulder lengths are taken from the edge of the shoulder to the hem of the garment and are not stretched.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
