chair mirror for an arts & crafts vase
A unique design for a specific object - an Arts & Crafts vase from around 1920. The basic design of a shelf mirror has been transformed into a little chair.
The chair, with its high back and short legs, was inspired by Charles Rennie Mackintosh and is made from hand painted poplar and natural oak.
The paint is from the Farrow & Ball range:
the main colour,
was used on the oak 'cushion' and
for the underside detailing.
The 'cushion' is a small oak frame, painted on the sides and glazed with 4mm glass. It contains a piece of vintage striped deckchair fabric. The frame can be detached and opened so that the fabric can be changed if desired.
The chair mirror frame is backed with 3mm MDF and is fitted with an integral split batten to enable stable, flush hanging on the wall.
This chair mirror can also be displayed free standing.
It measures 750 x 215 x 165mm and weighs 2kg and is stamped, signed and dated on the reverse.
This mirror is part of our own collection, and is on display in our London studio. It can be viewed by appointment or at one of our events. This design is very adaptable and we would be happy to discuss commissions basis.
