Our stock of mirrors is broadly divided into sections. The first comprises overmantel mirrors which are usually arched or rectangular like the high Regency one from Georgie Fame. The second is pier glasses which are tall and slender to hang above console tables or in alcoves. The third section is Regency convex mirrors which curiously distort reflections but are effective for maximising candle light. In addition there are hinged cheval mirrors for dressing and toilette. Finally we have pairs of ornate, beautifully carved decorative mirrors for the drawing room often further embellished with gilding or Vernis Martin – example the Chinese Chippendale style ones with ho-ho birds and an Edwards and Roberts label.
At Wick Antiques, we offer a curated selection of antique mirrors, each with its own unique charm and historical significance. Our collection showcases mirrors that span different eras and styles, allowing you to add a touch of history to your home.
One notable category in our collection is antique overmantel mirrors. These mirrors, often reflecting the craftsmanship of past centuries, come in a variety of shapes and designs, including arched and rectangular forms. They capture the essence of bygone eras, such as the high Regency period, and serve as captivating focal points above mantels or fireplaces.
Pier glasses, another treasured category, present tall and slender mirrors with intricate detailing. These antique mirrors were specifically crafted to grace the walls above console tables or in alcoves, exuding a sense of grandeur and sophistication.
For those seeking mirrors that evoke a sense of nautical nostalgia and intrigue, our selection of antique convex mirrors is sure to captivate. These convex-shaped mirrors not only reflect their surroundings but also create unique distortions, adding a touch of whimsy and personality to your space. They were favored during the Regency era and are particularly effective at enhancing candlelight ambiance.
In addition to these, we offer antique hinged cheval mirrors, which serve as functional and elegant pieces for dressing and toiletries. These mirrors often showcase exquisite craftsmanship and period-specific details, transporting you to a bygone era of elegance and refinement.
Finally, our collection features pairs of ornate and beautifully carved decorative mirrors that are perfect for the drawing room. These antique mirrors, often adorned with gilding, intricate carvings, or the iconic Vernis Martin lacquer technique, reflect the opulence and artistic flair of their respective periods. Notable examples include the Chinese Chippendale style mirrors, adorned with delightful ho-ho birds, and bearing the prestigious label of Edwards and Roberts.
Each piece tells a story and carries the rich heritage of the past, allowing you to bring a touch of history and character to your home.
