A rare find were these delightful huge pair of regency antique mirrors. These were in a very sorry state so I took the decision to restore them. Years of painted layers were carefully stripped back by a local antique specialist and repairs were made to the wooden frame detail and ornate plaster mouldings.
Initially I didn't want to paint them, they looked wonderful stripped back, showing the true colours of natural wood but thought I should give back what I had originally found. Farrow & Ball eggshell paint in 'off white' was then mixed and applied with a final application of wax to really bring out the detailed and ornate mouldings.
These would look fabulous in any room, even smaller rooms to give the clever illusion of space. These mirrors are extremely heavy so you would need good solid walls to hang these and I would recommend a professional to do this. Alternatively just standing on the floor resting against a wall would look magnificent too.
Ideally would be great to sell as a pair but I would consider selling them separately. Contact or visit the shop in St. Giles Street, Norwich or view online thegreygoose.co.uk for details and images.
