Ivy League

Detail of Ivy Border Carving on an Oak English Arts & Crafts Mirror (LEO Design)

Yesterday’s journal entry about Harvard sets-up today’s entry quite nicely: a different kind of ivy.

Shown above, an English Arts & Crafts mirror which we’ve just acquired.  Its bevelled, oval glass is surrounded by a thick quarter-sawn oak frame which has been deeply-carved with a trailing ivy motif.  Perfect over a dresser, in a powder room or next to the front door, this bit of turn-of-the-century craftsmanship will bring a little of the outdoors into your home.
