by jamie37 Gorgeous but heavy!
This is a gorgeous mirror! It looks amazing in our bedroom and we love the height. It is very very very heavy!!! I think it could lose a bit of weight and perhaps add a bit of width. Its gorgeous though and I would highly recommend. The color is as pictured.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Designcoach As lovely as it is heavy!
My husband and I just finished hanging this mirror- WOW- quite a physical challenge!! My husband assumed Super Hero status hoisting it up while I guided each bracket onto the hook while on a ladder.I purchased the Power Hooks when I ordered the mirror after reading many reviewers testimonials to the strength of the hooks for hanging objects up to 150 pounds. You need two for this mirror. Part of the hook is visible when the mirror is hung so my husband painted them to match the wall which camouflages it well. Our mirror is over a chest in our living room that is a matte dull silver/ dull gold wide- stripe finish. The mirror is definitely more gold than silver as many reviews have stated but that works over our chest. It is absolutely beautiful! Would have been best hung by TWO strong men however!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by mmassi Loved the first Bella mirror we bought, but...
We bought one for a guest bath but ended up putting it in the master. it is gorgeous! the second one came packed just as nicely, but was dented and the mirror isn't straight, and it has paint missing. its too heavy for me to repack and so we kept it. customer service gave me a discount for the damage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ballardsmom Needs more height and less weight!
I ordered the larger and taller 68" mirror for my daughter's bedroom. While the mirror itself is quite beautiful, it does not serve well as a "leaning mirror" due to its height; it looks a bit squatty against a wall, even with standard height ceilings. I think 10 or 12 additional inches would improve the aesthetics and functionality of this product tremendously. Also, due to its weight (90LBS approximate) I would NEVER attempt to mount this mirror onto a wall. So, in conclusion, if Ballard Designs manufacturing could extend the height and reduce the weight, this mirror could potentially receive an A+.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ilvballarddesignz Bella mirror is gorgeous
What a fabulous mirror!! I purchased this to hang in my dining room. The antique silver color works very well with my décor. I know some other customers have mentioned that the mirror has more of a gold coloring...I would disagree. I will agree that this mirror is extremely heavy. It definitely took some effort to unpack and to hang securely. Overall...this was an excellent purchase. I'm so happy I decided upon the Bella mirror.

Just received two of these, have only opened one so far but it is truly beautiful. Our house isn't finished yet so it will be a couple months before they go up but I can't wait! They came packaged very well. A beautiful antique silver.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous999999999 Beautiful but heavy.
Extremely heavy. There's also a flexible foam 1/2" spacer between the mirror and the frame that is unsightly. If the mirror wasn't so heavy and if the packaging was still intact (I had to destroy it to unwrap the mirror) I would send it back. Instead I'm going to look for some upholstery cording to gule over the foam.

Love my new mirror, looks great in my bedroom. Nice proportions and good quality. Very heavy and was boxed impeccably, the packaging was custom to the shape of the mirror. Took a little time to unpack, and you need a second set of hands, but well worth it. I would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by luvmyaccessories stunning
This mirror is of the highest quality and the packaging and shipping is above expectation. I debated on ordering this mirror because of the amount of brass in my bedroom, however I do have mixed metals as well. I ordered a chandelier for the bedroom from Ballard that is antiqued and it is beautiful. Because of other reviews on this mirror mentioning a gold color in the mirror I ordered it. Beware, the frame on the mirror I received is colored exactly as described by Ballard, silver with antiquing. There is no trace of gold. That being said, how can I fault Ballard for providing EXACTLY as they described.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TallulahBella A statement piece.
The mirror arrived in perfect condition and was quickly installed in our master bathroom. The frame is rich looking and the layering of the mirror unique and interesting. I plan to mount it on the wall at some point, but for now it is leaning. The weight of the mirror is significant and holds it in place -- we've experienced no issues with it wanting to slide. Frankly, I didn't expect to like the mirror all that much but now that we have it, I love it. It really adds presence to the bathroom and I've found myself decorating the remainder of the bathroom around the mirror. Thanks Ballard Designs for another great product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by emilyatl Beautiful and HEAVY
As a couple of the other reviewers have stated, this isn't really a silver finish. In fact, the box indicated the finish was "bronze". It's not a deal breaker for me, and it is a beautiful mirror, but be advised if you are strictly looking for silver.
Now, this thing is HEAVY. I had it delivered to the Ballard store in Atlanta, and one of the guys put it in my car for me. When I got home and tried to get it out of my car, I was shocked at how heavy it is. It's at least 60 pounds #the wall version, not the leaner#. I've tried 2 different types of "heavy duty" hooks so far, and they both bent with the weight of this mirror, so I have to figure out exactly how to hang it. It is beautiful though, so I'm definitely keeping it...

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous99 Compliments my living room
I looked at this mirror a long time and measured my space, considering the beautiful arch at the top, the width and length of the leaning style. I am very pleased that it suits the room and accomplished what I hoped it would (bouncing light, opposite the large picture window and breaking up the angular sightlines created by some bookshelves and TV). I agree w/ another reviewer that the finish is more goldish than silver; however, I have mixed metals: iron, stainless, pewter, and the odd brass piece, so it fits in well. The piece is quality. It is very heavy; and with 4 small dogs and 2 teenagers, we didn't need to secure it to the wall; it is simply leaning (in a low traffic area; and with the BD Bornova Side table in front of it, a bit off center). It was packaged extremely well, and arrived in excellent condition. I did have to wait a couple of months for it to arrive and ship...worth the wait.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CSAMRY Pretty Mirror But Not Really Silver and Extremely Heavy
We bought two of the wall mirrors for our bathroom sinks. We have not hung them yet because we'll need professional help to do so. They are extremely heavy. The crating was excellent and the mirrors arrived in good condition. I could barely drag them in from the front porch; each box was at least 50 lbs. Even uncrated the mirrors are too heavy for me to pick up.
The quality looks very good and I think they will be pretty over our sinks but the trim is more old gold than silver, IMO. I may rub some silver metallic paint on the trim so that it better matches our fixtures. It's a good thing we like them because, due to the weight, I can't imagine boxing them up and returning them!
