Product Description

A charming and original opticians mirror…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we believe it would date to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1950s. Extending up to 1.6 metres in height, the mirror is a beautiful piece and quite functional at that. Featuring a heavy duty cast iron base, a chrome plated stem and a wooden framed mirror this would have originally featured in an opticians store or even workshop. The mirror perfectly ‘free stands’ and is heavy and stable. The patina is wonderful and adds character and charm…

The mirror is height adjustable with a twist of the chrome peg and simply turn the peg at the reverse of the mirror to change the angle of the mirror. One could have it perfectly vertical, or it can be angled at ones wish…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The mirror is good structurally with just some surface scars, abrasions and paint chipping. In general there are some tatty and rusty areas, yet we feel the current condition simply adds to the charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
