Antique mirrors at Maison Decor and sharing the wealth

 Mirrors and me...lets just say I love them! 
So whenever I can I try to add more antique and vintage mirrors 
to my stores. Today I got 3 mirrors to add to the inventory.
This partial frame antique gesso and wood grey gilded finish is one
I have never seen before.  The frame runs half way around the bottom with tassels on
either side and swags of roses in between the fluted molding.
At the top there is a crown with clusters of roses and a ribbon!
 This round mirror is large and measures about 28" in diameter.
 A pretty header of ribbons and roses with a crown!
 A powder room would be the perfect spot for this beauty don't you think?
 The next mirror is an art deco style antique etched floral design mirror with a bevel edge.
 Whats neat about this mirror is that there are 4 amethyst glass rosettes! 
Yeah~purple glass!! You know I love purple....
 Its got a few minor condition issues, but all in all a 
nice vintage piece with special details at a great price.
 I have two fireplace mirrors~that is what they call these elongated rectangular shaped old mirrors.
This one is in the art deco style with etching and brass rosettes and its huge!
It measures 48" wide x 21" tall.
 The second fireplace mirror is more ornate and in the French style~
its also etched but has a beautiful frame along with the rosettes.

This large mirror is about 43" wide x 41" tall and has a grey gilt finish~
its a grand reception hall mirror and came out of an estate in Wellesley Mass.
(psss...that's where all the rich folk live....the old money rich kind of folk.)
When you need an antique or vintage mirror,
don't forget to check Maison Decor! 
We have more in the Boston store too!
This sideboard is getting the Gustavian treatment~
I'll be sharing after Christmas the before during and afters 
of how you can try to achieve this popular look.
Christmas is coming in a couple of days~
we had a nice family party at my son's dad's house the other night.
(Remind me that I am past the age to wear sleeveless attire now.
Bummer because I really thought I was ageless....)
I did wear a cute white mink stole with the silver sequined top...(why did I take it off?)
I got both of these at this great little consignment shop run by a single mom.
Now that I have my own shop I realize how much it means to a shop owner 
when you give them your business~so I picked up a few items for the women in my
life while I was there~including one SPECIAL item for my MIL!!
I'll share what she got after Christmas!
The consignment shop owner told me that my purchases are 
really going to help her out with her own Christmas.
I was so touched when she said that, because I really was 
trying to share the wealth, as it were, with real people hustling 
and working hard for a living.
So remember to shop local whenever you can~
it really does make a difference.
