Once upon a time, there was a beautiful old fashioned mirror that adorned the walls of grand homes. This mirror, known as the Doniford, whispered stories of elegance and subtlety from days gone by. With its fine beading pattern tracing the inner part of the frame, it was a sight to behold, stirring nostalgic memories in the hearts of those who gazed upon it.
This enchanting mirror was also graced with simple floral pattern corners, a testament to the delicate craftsmanship that went into creating such a treasure. The Doniford’s charm extended beyond its intricate patterns, drawing the eye to its unique structure.
The most characteristic element of this old fashioned mirror was the pronounced inset chamfer that framed its outer extent. This remarkable feature seemed to bring the front of the frame forward, bestowing upon it a sense of depth and dimensionality that would capture and captivate the imagination.
As if to defy the rigidity of its frame, the edges of the Doniford seemed to dance. Their flowing construct bowed inwards and outwards, creating an alluring sense of organic movement and comforting fluidity. This graceful dance added to the mirror’s aura of sophistication and balance.
In the end, the Doniford mirror, with its beautiful design aesthetics, exuded an air of exquisiteness that whispered tales of a bygone era. Its reflection, that of an old fashioned mirror, served as a reminder of the elegance and beauty that once was and still is, waiting to grace the walls of your home.

Colour & Finish
The frame is finished in a metallic gold paint. The frame’s details are accentuated by surrounding contrasting toned inking effects to give an antiqued look. This colouration encourages sentiments of luxury and sophistication within the atmosphere of your space.
The non-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 102 x 71 x 4 cm, this old fashioned mirror can find a suitable place on most walls throughout the home.

A Poem For You
In a dusty room, a relic stands tall,
An old fashioned mirror upon the wall,
With gilded frame and stories to tell,
Whispers of past, a nostalgic spell.
Timeless beauty, its surface reflects,
A portal to memories, one connects,
Gazing into its depths, secrets untold,
A glimpse of history, our hearts enfold.
Elegant patterns on its corners bloom,
As if to chase away impending gloom,
The dance of light and shadow interplay,
Revealing the charm of a bygone day.
Oh, old fashioned mirror, you’ve seen it all,
From laughter and joy to tears that befall,
You’ve borne witness to lives intertwined,
A world of emotions, forever enshrined.
Through generations, you’ve stood the test of time,
Your presence a comfort, a love sublime,
In your reflection, our stories entwine,
Old fashioned mirror, forever divine.
A testament to beauty and grace,
The old fashioned mirror holds its place,
In a world that changes, you remain,
A constant thread, a love to sustain.
