Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

With all the Snow White movies hitting the nation’s cinemas, it reminded me of what an important role mirrors play in our home decor. Mirrors can make a small room appear larger, reflect and spread light, highlight the view, and add a lovely decorative touch to any living space.

We always have a large selection of mirrors available in our monthly Estate Auctions. From neoclassical to French trumeau to modern, and everything in between. We usually have a large selection and they go for very reasonable prices.

Imagine some of these objects in your own home. Perhaps above a small table in your entryway, above a mantel, or in a dining room:


Lot #6118: 18th Century Italian Baroque Hand Painted Mirror (98.5″h x 48.5″w)


Lot #6127: Late 19th Century Giltwood over mantle mirror (26″ x 62″)


Lot #6177: 19th Century Italian Carved Giltwood Mirror (35″ x 27″)


Lot #6228: Black and Gold Painted Mirror with Garland Element (40″h x 31″w)

Think outside the box of all the ways mirrors can be used to complete or update a room. All of the above mirrors will be up for sale in our June 16th Estate Auction. We invite you to join us at this, or any one of our sales, to discover an inspiring mirror to incorporate into your interior decor.

I love the idea of putting an oversized mirror behind a bath tub:
