botanicalboysuk Malawi Mirror - Oblong (48.1) Large
Pressed tin ceiling tiles originated in the 1880s as an affordable way for people to dress up a room's ceiling. They were meant to emulate high-end decorative plaster. The gorgeous ceiling tiles have been re-used as the frame of this mirror. Due to the age of the tiles used the paint is cracked and chipped exposing the tin in some areas adding wonderful character.
The tin tile pattern and colour of the frame will vary from mirror to mirror as these are handmade unique items.
The two by two and two by four foot panels were originally stamped out of steel and called "steel ceilings." It wasn't until later, that the raw steel panels were plated in tin to help slow down rusting.
