    We’re selling a brand new large statement wall mirror.
    Brand new, never been put up. Still boxed.
    It’s gorgeous but not right for the room that we wanted it for.

    Bought from Wayfair for £180, were selling for less than half that.
    There is a slight bit of poor finish on part of it, not really noticeable unless you look close up. It’s hard to tell from the photo.
    Anyone welcome to come and have a look before committing themselves. (Outside or in the garage due to Covid regulations).

    Is the 'statement' that the owner is entirely devoid of taste?

    A loss of taste is symptomatic.

    Shouldn't you be isolating?

    OK, so you don't like it. Do you need to be so rude about it?

    It was a bit rude.


    Oh dear, I’m probably not going to sell it on the forum now am I?

    But I’m very grateful that he’s commented and bumped the advert up to the top!

    Depends how many people are really bothered about what Withnail thinks, if someone likes it they will. I can see its attraction in the right setting.

    I presumed that you were selling it because it reminded you of Sean Connery?

    It’s for the orangery which has a bare brick wall going up the full height of the house.
    We’d originally seen a very lovely mirror in a cafe in Eccleshall and we’ve searched high and low for something similar but to no avail.
    When we put this above the fireplace, in order to look right it needed to be much higher, but then of course you couldn’t actually see in the mirror so that didn’t look right either.

    So the idea of a mirror has been abandoned, now searching for a massive timepiece instead.

    Ikea used to do clock kits that allowed you to size things for yourself.

    This is one - about a yard across in this form.

    A central quartz mechanism and stick-on numbers and markers.

    Do consider the winding/battery changing access issues.

    I think, I read about an app, where you take a picture of the item that you desire, and it finds it for you.... Can't remember what it's called, I've not been much help, sorry, but maybe someone will know what I'm talking about.

    Do be sure Withnail approves before you buy though, won't you.

    I know someone who has an identical clock to this in his dining room. Seems to go in it, anywhere else and it would look out of place.
