Item specifics

Seller notes: Excellent original Victorian cast iron fireplace / overmantle mirror - has been restored -professionally shotblasted / polished. Immaculate condition.


Sub-Type/ Material:

Cast Iron

Fireplace Type:

Mantelpiece Mirror

You’re bidding on a stunning original antique Victorian cast iron overmantle fireplace mirror. I’ve owned this for many years and it came originally from a small Victorian chapel in London. I bought it and stored it for many years and recently intended to use it in my cloakroom however it is slightly to wide to fit into the niche my builders created hence the sale. I painstakingly restored it, firstly having it professionally shotblasted to remove all the previous paint and then it has been buffed up / polished and then carefully finished with Liberon paste to give it a lovely burnished finish. It looks stunning and the ornate detail and level of finish is beautiful. The glass mirror is the original one and it is nicely bevelled - it does have a few minor marks on the outer surface and the silvering on the reverse has worn in a few places around the edges – all adds to the authentic vintage look in my view. Hanging the mirror is relatively simple as there are 2 fixing holes on each side and the mirror has the original cast iron backplate so this is held very firmly in place. It is heavy but at approx 20-25kg will still be ok to fix to the wall without the need for special fixings in my view. The overall condition is excellent and there is no damage to the cast iron mirror surround – it is all original and the only marking is some very minor pitting in a few places and one or two pinholes – none of this is at all visible and in keeping with the age of the item. On the reverse of both the mirror frame and the mirror backplate, it says ‘RD No 149237’ and ‘No 110’.

Sizes are approx: 70cm high, 90.5cm wide (maximum) and 10cm deep – mirror glass (visible area) is 37cm wide and 27cm high. (the mirror backplate is held on the reverse with 4 original bolts which may need to be slightly sunk into pre-drilled holes in the wall to help mount the mirror flush to the wall when fixing).

I would much prefer the buyer to collect this item in person if at all possible as it is heavy and fragile. I would be happy if the buyer wants to send a ‘man with van’ style courier to collect too. I would not send this via a standard UPS/Fedex style courier. I could possibly arrange delivery via a ‘man with a van’ type of courier – please contact me before the auction ends for a quote. No international deliveries.

Collection is possible from Sutton in Surrey/South West London (weekdays 7.30pm-9.00pm or weekends 10.30am – noon).

Please see my other listings.

Thanks for looking.
