Mirror Mirror On The Wall...

Whether purchased to lighten or decorate a room, or for more practical purposes, the decorative mirror is an important part of interior furnishing.

A favourite item amongst our customers at Graham Smith Antiques, is the gilded, convex mirror, of which a fine example is shown in the photograph below. An early 19th century example, the carved eagle with ball and chain adds a regal element to this bold piece.

An example of another stylish and popular design is the Chippendale mirror seen in the photograph below. This mirror, currently for sale at Graham Smith Antiques, is cut from warm mahogany in the style of Thomas Chippendale (1718 – 1779) the London based cabinet-maker. A quietly stylish piece with an intricate outer contour, this would do well in today's family home. 

We are currently improving our company website to make the antiques in our collection even more accessible and to a wider audience. In the meantime we are providing links to new stock items via our Twitter and Facebook pages. Alternatively you can ring us on 01912 815 065 for further assistance and information on current and new stock.
