Rated 5 out of 5 by LMG1 Special, Unique and Functional all in one.
I loved the look of the mirror in the catalog and love it
even more hanging in my house. It's special, unique and
functional all in one. Every other pane of the prism mirrors has the "aged" speckles, so make sure that's what
you want. I have the large one hanging in a guest room and will be buying two small ones for my master bath.
Good quality. Very happy with my purchase one again.

Put three of them above a bed. They brighten the room and catch images. Well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LuvToTravel Beautiful light-reflecting antiqued mirror
I really like it now but when the mirror first arrived it took some getting used to for 2 reasons.
1) This is my first antiqued piece so I didn't realize that there would be so many black spots on the glass. It wasn't obvious to me online or in the catalogue. The large center mirror is clear however the smaller pieces around the outside are spotted or I suppose the decorator term is "antiqued". (Lesson learned)
2) It's in our foyer and we noticed if we stand about 6 ft back from it, it feels like a funhouse since you can see yourself in every small mirror panel. So if that would be distracting to you, you may want to think about where you hang it.
I have to say though that it refracts the light beautifully and looks amazing in my foyer. When the front door is open I can see it sparkle from the street. It's beautiful even from a distance. I'm very happy with it now!
I have since bought a Newport Demilune table in Walnut to place beneath the mirror and the combination is perfect. I'm thrilled with my purchase.

by prettyroom This mirror makes the room!
Love this mirror! The reflection in the outer ring adds so much dimension to the room. It picks up the light from an adjacent chandelier and makes the whole room sparkle! It has an antiqued patina on the outer mirrored section that makes it look like a classic piece, not something mass produced. It makes a lovely anchor piece to any wall.

The mirror is beautiful! It really does look like an antique mirror. You can't find this mirror in a department store!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnieG Perfect in my living room.
I am redecorating my living room and purchased the Bellesol mirror to hang over the fireplace. The mirror reflects the light coming in from a large window at the other end of the room. It's beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Savvygrammyof13 As advertised
The mirrors arrived in perfect condition. They are shiny, even though they have spots on them to give them an antique look. I think they are eye-catching and unique. I placed them alongside a large picture I have of an LDS temple, and they seem to enhance the temple theme.

I love my Bellesol mirrors! I was looking for the perfect thing to hang above my platform bed--considering a sunburst mirror or something like that. The large Bellesol was too big for the space, so instead I ordered three in the small size. They are the perfect solution. Sturdy and not cheap looking, the mirrors are modern but the vintage fading on the glass and gold rim soften the look perfectly and bring it great character and uniqueness.

I liked the mirror very much. I will definetly keep it. However, I do not think the photo in the catalog depicted it properly. Perhaps a close up would portray it more accurately. Every other section is speckled in gold. I, at least, did not detect that in the image.

We bought the larger size to put over our fireplace, and it makes all the difference in our room. It is so lovely. It is substantial and heavy, so I would recommend buying those special hooks Ballard sells where you don't have to attach it to a stud. We did not, but searched a hardware store and found something similar, which made installation a breeze. The mirror has some antiquing, which I think makes it look much richer. Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hedie For a modern or an antique look
These mirrors are ab-fab! I used three of them creating an arch over my Ballard Designs headboard. It really looks great I must say. It has just a hint of gold on the rim which really makes a nice accent. The antiquing on some pieces of mirror helps this to fit in a more traditional home while the simple lines helps it fit in with a more modern look. It is a win win. If you're on the fence, hop over it and buy these today especially at this price!

Rated 3 out of 5 by mirrormaven Too small/too big
While I do know how to use a tape measure, I found that the 'small' I ordered was too small, and the 'medium' (which is really a LARGE) that I ordered next was too big. The mirror is lovely, but I wish it came in a mid-size.

I actually purchased this mirror to lay flat so I could place my perfume bottles on it - and I couldn't be more pleased with the look! Someday, I may like to hang it up as well. It looks exquisite! On the down side, it is now on sale for less - and I just recently purchased it!
Ballard's is always one of my favorite places to look for beauiful and unique items.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Weezy Great mirror. Love it.
What's not to like. It's really just awesome, I love all of Ballard's pieces. So far my house is a Ballard house with a few pieces here and there from other places. But my favorites are always the ones from Ballards Keep up the good work. The price on this is just exceptional. I got the small mirror for just @25. Hung it in my kitchen on a wall and now I want to get another one to get a real dramatic affect.

This mirror is elegant and fits beautifully in our semi-traditional decor. I love the faceted, mirrored glass and the slightly speckled finish. It is quite a focal point. I love this mirror and highly recommend it.

These came in great condition and were easy to hang. They look great over my sofa and give the room a little regency/deco look, also bring a lot of light in.

We bought this mirror to go above the fireplace. At first, I was afraid it would be too trendy to last more than a year or two before we'd have to get something else. As it turned out, the mirror has a classic, timeless appearance which will assure its place on our wall for many years to come.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Decor4you Striking on a dark wall.
I purchased two small bellesol mirrors placing them on a dark purple wall. The look is striking and beautiful. Good quality. I should mention the antiqued look cannot be seen on the website but it adds to the overall effect.

I love the look of this mirror, but I am glad that I have placed it where someone would not be able to touch it or look too closely at it because it looks a bit cheap. For the money, you can't beat it though. If you hang it in a dining room, hang it at the same level as your chandelier and the lights really sparkle in the mirror. Nice effect!

This is a nicely made, pretty little mirror. I purchased 2 to place over 2 openings where sconces were supposed to go in my new house. I haven't been able to find what I wanted so bought the mirrors as a temp. option. I think I like it BETTER and will keep them in place. Great price for a pretty decorative piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by newhome Great above the buffet!
I was pleased with the ease of purchase and delivery. The mirror was packed very well. We purchased for above our buffet in the dining room which was starting to have a few too many square pieces in it. The size and shape are perfect. The buffet is a 1940s antique and people thought the mirror was an antique as well.

I love this mirror! Great quality and great value! I had been looking for a round mirror for my foyer due to the odd dimensions of the wall and it fits perfectly in the space. I love the antique look-highly recommended!

I used this mirror in an otherwise drab room. It's amazing how sunlight is captured and reflected back into the room to make it a warmer, more enjoyable room.

This mirror is like the sun hanging on my bedroom wall. It brightens the entire room. It is fun to look into as each piece reflects your image. I would highly recommend this to anyone. It is well made and just very pretty.
