One of the many wonderful things about shopping for our vintage website is that we never know what delights we will discover on our journeys around the country. Recently, we were excited and thrilled to find this stunning and rare Barbola mirror.
Often, when they are found, Barbola mirrors are decorated with crests of roses and dainty garden flowers, and are in the form of small mirrors with easel stands for displaying on dressing tables and chests. The incredibly beautiful example shown here is a large, wall-hung mirror and bears exceptional decoration in the form of big, blowsy tulips, intersected by ribbonwork.
We have only ever seen one of its kind before and were told that one such example fetched many, many hundreds of pounds at auction a few years ago!
We are really pleased to showcase this exceptional beauty in the Vintage Home Online Store where you will find even more rare and special vintage treasures.
Starting this week, January will see lots of fresh and fabulous vintage added to the shop, so do pop along when you can...
A Very Happy New Year to you all!
