Arts & Crafts wall mirror, oval, brass & copper

ROOMSCAPE
Antique Arts & Crafts wall mirror with an oval shape in brass & copper, 1900 ca, English.

This antique mirror has been gently cleaned respecting the antique patina. It is ready to hang.

This Arts & Crafts oval mirror could work as an over the mantle or wall mirror; hanged portrait or landscape.

It exemplifies the ideals and techniques of the Arts & Crafts Movement. All components are put together and made by hand. The metal has a hammered polish, riveted details and organic form.

The honest design combined with the use of brass & copper, make this mirror suitable for a range of interiors such as Art Deco, Antique, Hollywood Regency, Traditional, Country, Contemporary or Industrial.

The oval frame is made of sheets of brass & copper with a hammered finish. It has riveted copper work in places characteristic of the period. As it has been handmade, the hammered effect, shape & textured surface is unique & slightly asymmetrical.

The original silver mirror insert is securely held behind this frame. It is has a beveled edge with an organic slightly irregular shape in line with it`s `hand finished` quality.

Along the front the frame is decorated with four raised segments of geometric brass banding. These add depth, movement & reflections. The brass & copper metal surfaces continue along the edge towards the backside, where there is still present the original antique black enameled metal cover.

To hang the mirror on the wall there are two small plates screwed on the reverse side where it can hang by a chain. The plates can be unscrewed to fit in either position, portrait or landscape. The plates are original and the brass chain is new.

This antique wall mirror is in good condition for its age, with the original antique patina all preserved. The original mirror surface is in good condition, with no cracks and only one tiny nibble to the surface in line with age & wear. The metal surfaces are in good condition with minor imperfections such as marks & rubbing to the brass in line with age & wear, as expected for an antique piece.

Additional dimensions:

The total dimensions are: Height: 68 cm, Width: 48 cm, Depth: 3 cm.

The dimensions of the actual mirror silver surface are: Length: 55 cm & Width: 34 cm.

Packing is offered free of charge. We take special professional care with packing. For safe transport the mirror will be wrapped in bubble wrap, foam and an outer layer of card. It would then easily fit into a box with loose fill packing suitable for posting with a courier. We ship with reliable couriers (signed for, tracked & insured).

ARTS & CRAFTS MOVEMENT IN BRITAIN HISTORY: The Movement took its name from the Arts and Crafts Exhibition Society, a group founded in London in 1887.

The late 19th Century marked the beginning of a change in the value society placed on how things were made. This was a reaction to not only the damaging effects of industrialization but also the relatively low status of the decorative arts. Arts and Crafts reformed the design and manufacture of everything from buildings to jewellery. The Arts and Crafts leaders wanted to develop products that not only had more integrity but which were also made in a less `dehumanising` way.

The Arts and Crafts movement was influenced by art critic John Ruskin (1819-1900), whose work had suggested a link between a nation`s social health and the way in which its goods were produced, he expressed: "Fine art is that in which the hand, the head, and the heart of man go together".

Sergio Guazzelli worked as an Architect and Interior Designer in Argentina. In 1990, he moved to Rome, where he developed and diversified his talents. The 'Eternal City' ignited his interest in antiques, leading to a Diploma in Antiques & Fine Arts. As architecture embraced art; antiques found a place in his designs.

In 1993, Sergio opened his first antiques showroom in Rome, with a second seasonal shop in Ponza, an island close to Capri. The island spirit, with her international clients, influenced his eclectic style. Following features in several magazines, Sergio established his own art & antiques publication. As a part of this, Sergio regularly visited and reported on leading European Auction Houses. It was London's art & antique scene, which drew Sergio.

In 1999, Sergio opened with his partner, Blair Thorburn, their London shop, Roomscape Vintage Furniture, in the historic Horse Hospital at The Stables Market in Camden Town. It was here that they became one of the first to propose vintage Scandinavian style to the London market. Moving forward at the beginning of the Millennium, Roomscape proposed further styles such as Hollywood Regency & Modernist glam.

Roomscape’s adventurous approach brought them to the attention of decorators including a collaboration of the launch of Liberty’s Fourth-Floor Furniture Department in 2006. Decorators not only appreciated the style but also the quality of pieces. With a wide range of contacts and 25 years of experience, Sergio & Blair source stock from abroad as well as trade fairs, private clients and auctions houses. Roomscape searches for pieces in good condition and gentle restoration is done to bring the piece to the best original vintage condition. Each piece is researched with historical detail fully presented on the website.

In 2009, Roomscape moved from a ‘traditional’ shop to a larger showroom with a stronger online presence reaching global destinations. The ‘By Appointment’ Showroom allows customers, both the trade and the public, to have the full 75m² space all to themselves for as long as they want and have a coffee with the boys. Moving from a shop has allowed a more attention to buying and sourcing abroad. It has certainly helped that Sergio is fluent in five languages.

2010 was the year Roomscape worked in partnership with Mary Portas' Living & Giving shops furnishing the Notting Hill & Primrose Hill stores. This collaboration proved charity shopping can be socially responsible, exciting and stylish at the same time. ‘Socially’ responsible in other ways, Roomscape has sourced vintage pieces for the entertainment industry such as The Union Club in Soho, London. The Union is a well established private members club and one of the first to furnish their club with vintage pieces. Most notable is their collection of Sciolari Chandeliers from Roomscape.

In 2010 Roomscape launched a great selection of 20th Century Art, mostly British artists, from the likes of Terry Frost, Richard Smith, Patrick Heron, John Piper, Victor Pasmore, Patrick Proctor, Stephen Buckey, Brendan Neiland, Patrick Caulfield and many others.

Introducing a hire service in 2011, Roomscape moved fast into Fashion, supplying Fresh Film, Cutler and Gross luxury eyeware , Elle Decoration magazine, Agent Provocateur, Miss Sixty & Bulgari

Just in time for Christmas 2012 Roomscape launched a Vintage Jewellery Collection with rare American pieces from the 1940's & 1950's, such as Trifari, Coro Craft, HAR, Renoir & Matisse, Christian Lacroix and Dior.
