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 130 x 76 x 4.5 cm, this Victorian 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 forgotten corner of my abode,
A Victorian style mirror, a treasure bestowed,
Its ornate frame whispers tales of old,
Of romance, intrigue, and secrets untold.
A reflection of history in its gilded embrace,
The mirror transports me to another place,
A time of grace, of manners refined,
A world where beauty and art entwined.
Through this Victorian style mirror I see,
An era of elegance, of poetry and tea,
A ballroom of waltzes, where shadows dance,
As candles flicker, casting a trance.
Oh, the stories that lie within its gaze,
A thousand moments from bygone days,
The laughter, the tears, the dreams that shone,
In the eyes of those who have come and gone.
As I stand before it, my heart doth yearn,
To unravel the mysteries, to slowly discern,
The power of this Victorian style mirror,
To hold the past, a portal, a bearer.
With a touch of my hand, the glass I greet,
And for a moment, the past and present meet,
In the timeless beauty of a Victorian style mirror,
A cherished heirloom, a memory’s courier.
