antique mirrors to make a room

An early 20th century Venetian mirror in our store. I love the subtle pink tones in the frame.

A wonderful selection of mirrors available from Eloquence, Inc (in California, unfortunately!). I love the use of found objects in their displays - shells, coral etc. Oh, so stylish! An antique French mirror at home. It is mostly cream with gilt highlights. It has the original glass which is quite evident from the "foxing" or darker areas. I prefer mirrors that show age like this. Even larger mirrors such as this can sit easily on mantle pieces, no need to hang.


  1. Hi Tammy, I love mirrors too.... found a lovely shabby gilt plaster one at the markets on Sunday. I wanted to take it straight home but my husband put it in the shop and no sooner had he done so than one of my regulars came in and claimed it! I sometimes have pangs of regret when some of my favourites sell..... Have a great week, Cathy

  2. Wowwwwwwwwwww.i like your mirrors !!! ...so many so nice !!! love Ria.....

  3. Hi Tammy,

    I love all the mirrors that you have featured. A mirror can make so much difference to a room, that I think sometimes they are underestimated. Hope you've had a great week. Enjoy your weekend.
    Take care
