Victorian mirror



 This is a truly magnificent mirror frame and planter in Victorian style. Exquisitely designed to allure, it is visually splendid. Its suggestive structure and ornamentation take us  back to the time between the XIX and XX centuries, when mirrors like these hang in the most elegant and exclusive parlors.

  The frame has space for three main mirrors, a central larger one and two small ones on each side. Six more round mirrors are in the lower part of the frame. The planter is below the central mirror, providing space for plants or adornments. Two more small shelves are below the two side mirrors.   

  The whole frame is brilliantly ornamented with fretworked panels and borders containing among other things columns, dragons, grotesque masks and a large number of leaves and flowers. The protruding molding of the upper part is particularly graceful.

  I have completely reconstructed this pattern after an old Italian masterpiece of fretwork design. The largest piece is divided in sections that can be cut separately and assembled easily with the help of dovetail joints. The joints of these sections, though discrete, are nevertheless almost completely covered by the different pieces forming the ornamentation of the mirror. Besides the long time required to complete a project like this, its construction has no particular difficulty. The patterns have been designed to use 1/4 and 1/8 inches wood or 6 and 3 mm wood. By scaling the pattern appropriately any other wood thickness can also be used. These are the measures of the mirror depending on the wood thickness you use:

  Height Width Depth
1/8 and 1/4 in. wood 36.8 in. 30.9 in. 5.4 in.
3/16 and 3/8 in. wood 55.2 in. 46.3 in 8.2 in.
4 and 8 mm. wood 117.3 cm. 99 cm. 17.5 cm.
3 and 6 mm. wood 88 cm. 74.2 cm. 13.1 cm.
