Stunning Rare 1930s Tulips Barbola Mirror (hw822)

This is one of our favourite finds of all time! When Barbola work became a popular craft in the 1930s, the main designs crafted were roses, daisies, anemones and pansies. Such pretty and dainty florals often decorated the crests of mirrors and we have always been pleased to present a small selection of these in the Vintage Home shop. Having researched Barbola work we were aware of the extremely rare forms of decoration, one of which being the large, blowsy tulips. Therefore, we are absolutely thrilled to have tracked down this incredible mirror. It is a large circular wall mirror which dates to the 1930s. It has two swathes of stunning hand crafted tulips and leaves either side, separated by ribbonwork. The beauty lies in the amazing 3-dimensional appearance of the lovely big flowers, accompanied by the soft and pretty colours in which they are painted. The edge of the mirror has a creamy stippled finish and the pretty ribbons are painted in shades of blue, pink and mauve.

For us, this rare and coveted beauty is the ultimate in the age-old craft of Barbola; hang this stunning mirror on your wall and be the envy of ...everyone!

The mirror is approximately 48cm across; this excludes the decoration which projects over the edges, the maximum width taking the decoration into consideration is 57cm. There is a small tip of a leaf and stalk missing and the usual age-related markings and cracking associated with older Barbola work. The original composite board backing had been damaged at some time so this has been replaced with a well crafted plywood backing. It still has its original hanging chain and mounts.

Due to the rarity of this item and the fragile nature of the decoration, we would prefer the mirror to be collected or we can deliver to certain areas of the UK.
