But when I checked the materials list at the online article, the mirror wasn't on it! Oh.
Not noted in the article at the Traditional Home website, in the magazine text it was noted that the mirror was an RH item. But when I went looking for it at RH, I couldn't find it. So, I went looking for something similar.
I did not find a mirror exactly like it -- I wasn't even sure what to search for! I tried medallion mirror, round mirror, round mirror with medallion, and my results were - meh.
This is similar (but not an exact match) to the mirror in the inspiration photo and I found it at RH online:
The Salvaged Mansard Mirror:
- Small: 29½"W x 4¾"D x 28"H; 8.5 lbs.
- Large: 41½"W x 5"D x 38"H; 15 lbs.
Details: Designed by David Thompson:
As you can see, it is not a round mirror, it is oval. But it has the same presence and heft as the mirror in the inspiration photo. And, as a salvaged wood product, it's just beautiful. Love that finish. I do not know where it was made, though. USA? It doesn't say.
Here's what else I found:
This Garden Mirror at Ballard Designs is probably closest in overall shape/look but it, too, is an oval (I am thinking the mirror in the inspiration photo looks round, but maybe I'm wrong):
It's a beauty, all right. And the price is good too. Right now, on sale for $109 (originally $169):
Dimensions:Oval: 31 1/4"H X 24 1/4"W X 3 3/4"D
Oval Mirrored Area: 20"H X 14 3/4"W
Oval Mirror Bevel: 1/2"
Overall dimensions are somewhat close to the small size of RH's Salvaged Mansard Mirror. Ballard's mirror isn't cement, though, which would be okay with me, although probably heavy. It's not wood, either. It's made in China from polyurethane. Not happy about the place of origin or the price, even on sale. Maybe that's why it is on sale -- because other folks feel the same way???
Here is a mirror from Home Decorators. It is not round, it's octagonal, and it does not have what I am calling the "shield" embellishment at the top, but it is made from wood, and the price for the size is really good:
Mettalise Wall Mirror
Dimensions: 31" x 31"
Wood with distressed finish
An enterprising D-I-Yer might be able to find a nice trim piece to place center top of the mirror to give it a "medallion" and a dry brushed coat of white chalk paint...
Again, I don't know where this mirror was made. I'm thinking that these days, unless it says otherwise in the advertisement, everything is from China. I think if more of us insisted on buying American made products or not buying at all, we might get some family-sustaining jobs and wages back in this country.
