Art Nouveau Full length Mirror / Cheval
Custom made for a Parisian Department Store
Signed: Frederick Sage & Co. Limited, London & Paris
Circa 1890-1900, Paris, France


Rare and wonderful full length dressing mirror / cheval.
Custom made for one of the Premier Parisian Department Stores in the Belle Epogue / Art Nouveau era. 

Constructed of solid brass, with an arched top and open top rail,
framed in a elegant and simple leaf and berry design, similar to a gingko leaf.
The unisex design would be suitable for a dressing room, a glamorous master bath or even an entryway. 

Brass signature plaque intact at base of mirror frame: Frederick Sage & Co. Limted, London & Paris

The company remains in business today. Known for high quality custom 'shop outfitting' since 1860,
they worked around the world, creating custom entryways and interiors for notable museums and department stores such as Harrods,  Au Printemps, Galeries LaFayette and The Louvre- to name a few.  

The company celebrated their 100th year centennial, with a book detailing it's history, thus far.  
You can read about the history online here:  

Per the Frederick Sage book :
' No Sage organization exists in Paris today, but there remain many monuments to its activities,
the fine frontage of the Galeries Lafayette, the Printemps, The Louvre, La Maison Barclay, Kirby Beard, 
Mappin and Webb, to mention only a few, and countless others both in Paris and in provincial cities. 
The Paris Branch also undertook a wide range of contracts as far distant as
Los Angeles, U.S.A., Algeria, Egypt, Roumania and Turkey.

Purchased in France, we are currently researching the actual name of the Department Store
this mirror came from, and this information will be added shortly.

Please note: This mirror was originally bolted to the floor of the shop.
You may purchase this as shown, or we can have a custom marble base made for it, for an additional fee.
You may also choose to remove the floor attachment and hang this on a wall,
noting you would need special anchors to support the weight.

Dimensions: 36" wide, 80" high at center.

Condition: In very good original condition. 
Polishing & lacquering or re-plating the brass frame in polished nickel is optional, for an additional fee.
A new mirror will be made for the frame upon request, for an additional fee. (we do not have the original)
Please keep in mind if you purchase the frame only, and have the mirror made when you receive this,
shipping will be much more economical and you will eliminate the risk of breakage.
