Archtop Mirrors

The English Archtop mirror is a versatile style that has been made since the end of the 18th century - the quintessential mirror for hanging above a Victorian fireplace.

Suitable for both modern and more traditional rooms, the softer shape of the archtop breaks up the straight lines of fire surrounds, doorways and windows.

Our Archtop range was launched in 1985 in our first designer collection of Overmantel mirrors and remains one of most popular collections, particularly with customers seeking to complement original features of their period homes. 

NB all our Archtop Mirrors can be tailored in dimensions, finishes and in decorative details - please contact us to discuss the options
While Archtop Mirrors are often positioned above fireplaces, we can round the bases and the feet for free hanging on walls too.

It is rich in composition detailing - although for a more paired down look these could be amended or removed.

This panel style mirror would traditionally come with bevel edges to the glass to add further distinction but again this option can be altered for plain glass or even antiqued glass for a softer look.
