Antique French mirrors UK

Antique French mirrors don’t just reflect what’s in front of them now. They also reveal a lot about the past. Like the kinds of materials and styles that were fashionable in France over a hundred years ago.

Our carefully curated collection of antique French mirrors is mostly made up of pieces dating from the 19th century, when mirrors became refined and decorative items for the first time. Although we do have some gorgeous earlier and later pieces as well.

The styles that dominate our selection are the Rococo style, which are luxuriously ornate and ornamental. And the Neoclassical, which works to strip all that back using straight lines and Greco-Roman design elements like gilded imitation columns in the frames.

Whether you’re looking for exaggerated beauty or understated elegance, we have the perfect mirror to finish off any room in your house. This is thanks to our amazing community of online sellers, who only stock the very best in French antiques.
