Types of Antique Mantel and Fireplace Mirrors

Mantel and fireplace mirrors come in square and oval shapes, but you can also find options in round, arched, or geometric shapes. These mirrors hang above fireplaces or mantel shelves, and historically, mantels were even lowered to make room for large mirrors that reflect as much light as possible.

Many 18th- and 19th-century mantel and fireplace mirrors were as tall and wide as six feet. Wooden mirror frames typically consist of mahogany, walnut, giltwood, and oak. You can find a quality piece to match your fireplace with gold, brass, or metal antique mantel and fireplace mirrors.
