£1,850

Free shipping on orders over £500

Arts & Crafts copper wall mirror, with bevelled mirror, and fish and shell decoration. Newlyn being a fishing village and the craftsmen being the local fishermen then decoration was typically an aquatic theme. The fact that this item is unmarked is normal for Newlyn mirrors and is somewhat baffling as this is large item and would have been one of the more expensive peices made, yet small trays and jugs are always marked.
Manufacturer Newlyn
Country of Manufacture Cornwall, England
Date c. 1905
Marks unmarked
Condition Perfect. The mirror was originally lacquored to keep a shiny finish and this lacquer has been slowly polished away over time. This accounts for the patches between the detail and can be seen in the photos. The backing is original but the back panel holding the mirror in had split its backing paper so this has been sealed down with black paper tape.
Size 47.5cms high by 40cm wide, and 15mm deep
Reference
