Seller notes: No chips or missing clips. Beautifully aged & foxed glass. See pics & description for full details.


his mirror has a very elegant shape and beautifully aged glass. It looks wonderful in either a vintage themed or contemporary interior.



The details...

This is an original large & heavy mirror dating to some 75 to 80 years ago; the beautiful silhouette looks stylish in any setting. The glass has delicious signs of age in plenty of foxing, mainly around the edges, which serves to underline its genuine vintage pedigree. This lovely speckled foxing is very desirable but cannot be successfully reproduced. I love it and can`t resist antique mirrors with their soft reflection.

The mirror is has a lovely bevelled edge which emphasises the elegant shield shape. The condition of the mirror is gorgeous vintage with no chips to the glass. All of the little clips which hold the glass to the backing panel are still in situ. On the reverse the original chain remains in place although it has been shortened at some point in its life. The heavy backing panel is age darkened but sound.

A fabulous, original vintage mirror with an understated elegance and glamour typical of its period – a million times more chic than any modern version!

The measurements...

This lovely mirror is a generous size and measures 68cm/26¾” across and 40cm/15¾” high. The unpacked weight is nearly 6 kilos but the packed weight will be significantly more once I`ve completed my very careful packaging.

Please note...

Payment within 48 hours is appreciated but if you are waiting for other items to end then just let me know. I like to save you money by combining postage if you buy more than one item from me if at all practical - but please don`t pay me before I send you an invoice with reduced shipping or it gets complicated as I will have to pay fees on the entire original postage cost.


Because I pack very promptly following notification of a sale, if you wish to wait for other auctions to end in order to combine shipping, could you let me know immediately after your purchase – otherwise I`ll pack right away and won`t be able to combine & reduce postage costs.


One more thing... I am now using My Hermes on a regular basis for small to medium sized items and I like to offer next working day dispatch but, in order to do that, I need to receive your cleared payment by 9.30pm as `last orders` is 10pm and of course I need time to input your details, place the order and pay for it. Prices quoted are for MAINLAND UK ONLY. Highlands and Islands postcodes attract a shipping surcharge.


Overseas buyers please note that any import taxes levied are your responsibility and delays may occur at customs points – this is something outside of my control.


Phew – I hope you managed to wade through all the above without nodding off. It is important as it helps me to provide you with the excellent 5* service that I always aim for. 


***Please don't forget that I list unique vintage & antique pieces…***

There will almost certainly be some evocative signs of their previous history to be found. That is the nature - and the SHEER JOY - of such pieces.

If pristine is your preference then my eclectic, characterful - and sometimes charmingly shabby - treasures simply won't be for you.

If this is YOUR kind of vintage treasure then do browse through my other items for more unique & characterful pieces. If you take a minute to add me to your favourites list then you will always know where to find me!
