Old Mirror Tray

This is a beautiful re-purposed old mirror tray. It is old and somewhat worn. Like nearly all the items in my shop it is very special and has a story. Not a long one, well actually longer than I know…

I bought my house when I was 21. I moved in and set about making it a home. This house is about 100 years old give or take 10 years. In that time, generations of inhabitants have passed through here. They have lived, loved, and laughed in this old house. For most though, this building just a stop on their route to something more permanent. Most of them, singles and young families. Many have left old stuff behind, in the basement. Things they didn’t want for whatever reason when they left for their new place. I have no idea how old this old mirror encased in wood happens to be. It was clearly once a piece of something larger. And for whatever reason, it was discarded by one of the many previous inhabitants of this old house. So, I carefully brought it up stairs and carefully cleaned it up, I did nothing to refurbish it as I really like the old aged rusticness of a piece of history left behind. What I did do, was add a pair of pretty handles, and turned it into a tray! This item is old so proper care is important. It makes a great decorative piece but carrying it around with heavy objects on top of it may cause it’s destruction. Only light things. Or heavy ones if it is used decoratively laying flat.
