Antique Bevelled Mirrors are A Work of Art

Sideboard

Antique Bevelled Mirrors add a decorative, stylish and chic touch. They are a glamorous work of art and are extremely precious nowadays. Bevelled mirrors were in the majority of antique pieces especially if there was a mirror. Bevelled mirrors were used in wardrobes, sideboards, hat stands, dressing tables, wash basin stands, mirrors and bathroom or fireplace mirrors. Some bevelled mirrors were used without a frame due to their already glamorous and classic appearance. Bevelled mirrors often didn’t have a frame and this was once considered an economical design and option. Glaziers who do bevelled mirrors and glass are ‘hard to find’. If you know of any please let us know at shop@artantiquesantlers.com.au

This classic, timeless and stylish technique is undeniably one of the main reasons why antique mirrors and furniture looks so much more decorative and classy. Any item that had a bevelled mirror on it had an immediate improved quality and formidable style.

The majority of antique mirrors were bevelled. This means that each mirror had a slant at the edge of the mirror to catch the light.

If you look at antique furniture you will see bevelled edge mirrors on any shape or design. Some bevelled mirrors were more fancy than a slant cut on the edge.

Modern replicas try to promote their mirrors as bevelled but there is no comparison to an antique variety. I have never seen a contemporary bevelled mirror to the same standard and quality as an antique version.

The antique bevel acts as a prism and retracts light, you may even see rainbow reflection. The bevel also highlights the mirror and its frame and usually accentuates part or all of the furniture it is part of. Bevelled mirrors provide the WOW and GLAM factor to any furniture design, mirror or interior design.

1920s French Twin – Armchairs

Set of original 1920s French twin single armchairs in Wedgewood blue and cream jacquard floral fabric.

Curved timber sides and legs with Queen Anne style legs and padded sides with cosy top and bottom feather cushions in matching fabric with piped trimming. Very sturdy, comfortable and reasonable quality. There are some characteristic marks on each piece which add to its natural integrity and beauty. The timber work is impeccable and beautiful! Fabric is worn and tattered in parts.

These chairs would make great bedroom chairs or suit lounge, sunroom or enclosed verandah. Each chair is beautifully constructed and has been made by traditional French craftsman and has years of wear and tear left for some special person to enjoy.

Great value as contemporary replicas would be dearer and nowhere as  beautiful or durable. This chair aptly matches other French products we have such as an original Jewels Cheret Poster.
