Antique Overmantle Mirrors from LoveAntiques

Antique Overmantle Mirrors

Designed to sit above a fireplace or similar, Overmantel mirrors have a flat bottom to allow them to sit in a stable position. Since a fireplace was usually an important focal point to most rooms, the Overmantel mirror was often the grandest mirror in the home to (quite literally) reflect the social standing of the owners. Being glass they were also intended to add light to the room as well as help reflect and radiate the rising heat from the fire. Often they were decorated in gilt with moulded or carved detail.


Today as more people rely on central heating rather than fireplaces, antique 19th Century and vintage 20th Century Overmantel mirrors are often repurposed to sit above sideboards and chests or just hung free-standing on the wall. The practical size and shape of smaller examples usually makes them ideal for a hallway or small bedroom. However, there is nothing more classic than seeing an antique Overmantel mirror proudly hanging above an old fashioned fireplace where it was intended. At LoveAntiques you will find a great selection of antique and vintage Overmantels for sale.
