Arts & Crafts Mirrors - I


English Arts & Crafts Brass-Framed Mirror with Hand-Hammered Butterflies Decoration (LEO Design)


When it comes to Arts & Crafts decoration, mirrors are heavy hitters for making a big impact, very quickly.  Hammer-in a nail, hang the mirror, and there you go: instant architectural interest.  Even in modern, non Arts & Crafts interiors, a handful of period mirrors will give your space a terrific aesthetic upgrade.  Best of all, you can move them around easily and take them with you when you move!

The English Arts & Crafts bevelled mirror, shown above, was made around the Turn-of-the-Century.  It features hand-hammered butterflies surrounded by classic, Art Nouveau whiplashing.  The brass sheeting was hand-tooled and then wrapped around a wooden frame, for support.
