Anthropologie calls it the Weathered Curlicue Mirror and it includes this discription:
As if plucked from a 19th century farmhouse, this remilled pine mirror is full of rustic charm.
- Remilled pine, glass
- 34"L, 27"W
So, does it look familiar to you? If you're a design junkie like me, it probably does because it looks very much like a mirror that appeared in Restoration Hardware's catalog months ago. RH calls it the Mansard Scroll Mirror and here's a picture of it taken from their website:
This is the description for the Restoration Hardware Mirror:
As you can see, the dimensions are the same for both versions. I notice a distinct difference in the little double scallop at the top of the Antho version. It appears the scallops are inverted on their version.
Mansard Scroll Mirror
Inspired by classic late 19th-century architectural windows collected in his world travels, designer David Thompson reproduces this mirror as a distinctive piece for the home.
Hand-carved from salvaged wood
Treated with customized stains and then hand-painted
Multi-step finishing process achieves a uniquely weathered, washed patina that makes each mirror truly one of a kind
Dimensions: 27"W x 2-3/4"D x 34"H
Catalog, Web and select stores
I know vendors copy each others merchandise all the time but it's odd that the copy is more expensive than the original design.
So you can have the original design from Restoration Hardware for $295 or you can purchase the imitation from Anthropologie for $73 more at $368. Hmmmm...it's a tough call ;-)
Hopefully the Restoration Hardware mirror's designer, David Thompson, is flattered by the
rip off imitation of his design.
