I am truly grateful for the opportunity to introduce the captivating Selworthy mirror. It is a piece that exudes a sense of appreciation for the gothic style, which hails from a significant era in history. This remarkable mirror showcases two parallel capsule columns that run gracefully from the bottom of the glass pane to the base of the arched top. This element alone is a testament to the mirror’s superb design.
In addition to the striking columns, the Selworthy mirror is adorned with a traditional Gothic-style ‘halo.’ This elegant feature fills the inner-space of the arch, creating a visual effect that is both impressive and mesmerizing. The halo pays homage to the intricate detailing often found in Gothic architecture, providing the mirror with a touch of historic charm.
The Selworthy is not just a mirror, but a true embodiment of a simplified form of Gothic architecture. It evokes feelings of awe, admiration, and nostalgia as it connects us to the rich history and traditions that arose during the 12th to 16th century medieval period in Europe.
With its breath-taking design and intricate details, the Selworthy gothic style mirror is a timeless piece that effortlessly captures the essence of a bygone era. It is a mirror that allows us to appreciate and connect with the beauty of our past, and serves as a constant reminder of the continuity of history.

Colour & Finish
The frame is finished to look and feel like stone.
To create this stone effect the frame has been sandblasted to leave a mottled effect that is knobbled but not especially prickly to the touch. When running your hand across the frame, it feels akin to a coarse yet surprisingly smooth stone such as granite.
This rough, textured look and feel of the sandblasted surface adds a distinct, naturally aged quality to the piece, making it blend seamlessly with the organic surroundings of your garden.
The colours of the stone-like finish range in hues of sandy whites to warm creams.
The frame is made of steel for a hardy structure that won’t bend or bow when exposed to moisture or sunlight.
The reflective glass is frost protected so you can feel confident in leaving this mirror outdoors all year round without it cracking.
A plastic sheet board sits behind the mirror panel to keep it in place within the frame while helping to further protect it from both accidents and the elements.
Coming in at 112 x 61 x 4 cm, this gothic style mirror can work well as a feature piece on a wall near your outdoor seating area.
You can also add a touch of glamour to your garden by placing it on your fence or shed.
A unique and eye-catching way to display this piece can be by hanging it on a tree.
If there’s one thing this piece can do well, it’s moving natural light into spaces that were previously without. So, we invite you to have fun and experiment with ways you could beam light into those shadier spots within your garden.
Installation & Hanging Guidelines
This mirror will come with one, two, or three keyholes on the reverse of the metal frame, which can be used to hang it onto either screws or hooks.
To hang this mirror, attach it directly to wall screws (not supplied) that are equally spaced from the centre of the keyholes. DO NOT STRING.
Please note that screws and Rawl plugs are not included with this item.
We recommend using a competent trades person to install this mirror in a secure and safe manner. As when hung outside, strong winds can cause weak fastenings to come loose.
Similarly for the same reason, we do not recommend leaning this mirror against walls or trees outside without the frame being securely fastened in some way.
This mirror is not only confined to use within the outdoor realm, as it can also work well indoors hung on walls throughout your home.
Cleaning & Maintenance
Should the glass require cleaning, utilize a standard glass cleaning spray or a water/white-vinegar mixture spray, then wipe the glass using a lint-free, scratch-free cloth for a flawless, streak-free result.
When cleaning the frame, refrain from using bleach or harsh chemicals. Opt to wipe it with a slightly damp with water lint-free cloth.

A Poem For You
In a chamber draped with shadows, where the whispers softly roam,
Lies a relic of the ages, a gothic style mirror calls it home.
With arched top and haloed grace, the past and present blend,
It holds a secret, an ancient tale, a story to transcend.
Through its glass, reflections dance, of moonlit nights and days,
Of towering spires and stained glass dreams, in the mystic, hallowed haze.
The gothic style mirror stands tall, a portal to the past,
A guardian of memories, in a world that’s changing fast.
The spirits of the ages, within its frame reside,
Their whispers echo softly, the secrets they confide.
The gothic style mirror, a testament to time,
To the beauty of the darkness, the poetry of the sublime.
As we gaze upon its visage, the centuries unfold,
The tales of love and passion, and the battles brave and bold.
In the depths of the mirror’s reflection, our hearts begin to stir,
As we’re drawn into the magic, of the gothic style mirror.
From the shadows of the past, to the gleaming of the night,
The gothic style mirror guides us, with its eternal light.
A symbol of endurance, as time’s river flows,
The gothic style mirror, a secret history it bestows.
