About Me

Loving Devon and now 5 successful years into trading from the showroom in Honiton I continuously derive great pleasure from sharing my world with clients and friends.

I specialise in mirrors and over the years have become a craftsman,dedicated to traditional frame restoration and water gilding. In my small workshop/showroom in Honiton, Devon, I artistically present beautiful antique mirrors lovingly restored where necessary with integrity.

Authenticity and originality are my core principles when assessing each restoration project. I beautify where necessary but sometimes beauty is natural and timeworn. Visitors here can experience a unique ambience where an appreciation for all things antique mirror related can be obtained.

Since the age of 24 and becoming an antique dealer living in rural South West France I have become fascinated with the beauty and character of antique mirror frames and mercury mirror glass. Having been initially inspired by dear Alphonse the venerable gilder/artist, I began my journey and have since absorbed myself in this wonderful field.

My business has grown over the years supplying the most reputable antique dealers and selling through some of the most notable auction houses. Now the real joy is connecting with the public and sharing my artistic passion and love of craftsmanship.

The Character Mirror Company in Honiton welcomes you to look for your unique antique mirror, unusual piece of furniture or decorative item and experience traditional restoration and craftsmanship first hand.
