There was a time when the style of the antique framed mirror, the Monksilver, graced the walls of countless homes, bringing a touch of sophistication and elegance to every room. This classically styled accent range remains as popular as ever, serving as a gentle reminder of days gone by.
The uniqueness of the Monksilver lies in its pronounced floret accents, adorning all four corners of the frame. Each corner is brought to life with delicate spruce leaf branches that extend outward, connecting the majestic beauty of nature with the refined craftsmanship of the past.
As you trace your eyes along the mirror’s outer edges, you’ll find they gently bow inward, creating a smooth and flowing look that’s simply irresistible. This subtle curvature, a testament to the skill of the artisans who crafted it, brings a certain harmony to the design.
Where the bowing edges meet at the edge-centre, you’ll discover a small, winged crest accent that adds a touch of whimsy to the piece. It’s these small details that give the antique framed mirror its undeniable character and charm.
As you gaze into the reflection of this timeless classic, you can’t help but feel a sense of nostalgia wash over you. The Monksilver is more than just a beautiful statement piece – it’s a cherished relic of a bygone era.

Colour & Finish
The frame is finished in a brushed metallic silver paint. This colouration encourages sentiments of refinement, elegance and sophistication within the atmosphere of your space.
The bevelled reflective glass panel sits inside of a frame comprised of a high quality casting resin, which makes up most of the structure of the frame including the embellished details.
The resin is melded onto a hardwood base that sits encased in the resin towards the rear of the frame, to add further solidarity in its structural integrity.
The glass pane has a wood-based backing board that sits behind it to provide additional support and stability, helping to ensure the longevity of the piece, with framing tape holding it in place to the frame.
Coming in at 170 x 109 x 6 cm, this antique framed mirror can work well as a prominent wall feature, or you can place it on the floor as a lean-to-wall for a fuss-free installation whilst still easily being able to see the whole of you from head to toe.
Installation & Hanging Guidelines
This mirror comes with 4x factory-supplied D-Rings (straps) on the rear of the frame, positioned for both landscape and portrait orientations to enable versatile mounting options.
To hang the mirror, attach it directly to wall screws (not supplied) that are equally spaced from the centre of the D-Rings (straps). DO NOT STRING. Please note that screws and Rawl plugs are not included with this item.

Cleaning & Maintenance

If the glass needs extra cleaning, use typical glass cleaning spray or a water / white-vinegar mixture spray and wipe the glass with a lint-free, scratch-free cloth to get a streak-free finish.
If the frame needs extra cleaning, do not use bleach or harsh chemicals. Instead use a slightly damp lint-free, scratch-free cloth with water and wipe off any excess moisture afterwards with a dry cloth.

A Poem For You
In a room of whispers and secrets untold,
An antique framed mirror, its story unfolds.
With memories of laughter and longings of yore,
It stands ever-watchful, a guardian of lore.
Oh, antique framed mirror, your visage serene,
A window to worlds that no longer are seen.
Your frame, like a tapestry, woven with grace,
A portal through time, to a long-lost embrace.
You’ve captured the essence of eras gone by,
A silent observer, a tear in your eye.
You’ve witnessed the birth of young love’s first bloom,
And the slow march of time, as it weaves its own doom.
In your glass, lies the truth, of what once used to be,
And the fleeting reflections of life’s mystery.
The faces that graced you, the joys and the fears,
Are echoes of moments, now vanished like tears.
And as I now ponder, in your presence so grand,
I long for the days, when you first graced the land.
For you are a treasure, a gift from the past,
A symbol of beauty, with stories so vast.
Oh, antique framed mirror, your wisdom so rare,
A reminder of times, when life seemed more fair.
May your elegance shine, and your spirit endure,
As a beacon of memories, forever so pure.
