An Arts & Crafts Movement mirror decorated with Ruskin style cabochons

Price: £575.00

Description: This large and attractive Arts & Crafts Movement mirror dates to the early 20th Century (Circa 1900 -1910) and is very similar in style to the mirrors retailed by Liberty's of London during this period - its large oval frame is covered in hand-beaten brass and copper, which has been punctuated with four hand-cut Celtic style brass mounts, each of which contains a lustrous turquoise and blue Ruskin style ceramic cabochon. One cabochon has minor hairline cracks which have been now stabilised. Its mirror plate is possibly not original but it is certainly of good age, probably 1930s - 1950s - we can tell this because whilst we were removing it, to clean away years of trapped metal polish, we noticed the securing pins had been in place for a very long time, but also that there were indications of other fixing points. The wooden panel, that held the mirror in situ, has been put back and sealed with a layer of brown paper to emulate what was originally there. The plate has only very minor surface blemishes which are to be expected - in our opinion these and the hairlines to one of the cabochons do not reduce the viewing pleasure of this fine Arts & Crafts Movement mirror. Measurements - 93 cm high x 68 cm wide
