I’ve seen a good few of these pressed copper mirrors over the years, but I don’t think I’ve seen many quite as nice as this one! The glass itself is also copper-coloured, so it’s more of a piece of art than it is a mirror that you’ll be able to do your make-up in – although if you just want to make sure that your hair’s not plastered all over your face it’ll probably do an ok job! Aside from the fact that it’s in reasonably good nick (these mirrors are often quite badly damaged because of how soft the copper sheeting is), I also really like the classically South African design – those proteas are quite lovely!
These mirrors were predominantly made as art projects, but whoever designed this one had a bit more skill than your average housewife! A beautifully kitsch mirror that will look super cool in the right home!
