About Us

Tara Cole Mirrors, is owned by me Tara Cole, I am a sign writer with a love of gilt frames, antique mirrors and fairground art.  I am based just outside Henley on Thames on the Oxfordshire Berkshire border.  I also own Tango & Twist which sells my light up signs made from reclaimed wood.  I love colour and light and incorporate this into my work.  Most of my mirrors include some gilding in gold, silver or copper leaf.  All of these mirrors are hand painted by me in reverse - so the art work is on the inside and the front of the mirror or glass is completely smooth, I also gild the mirrors in reverse.

The antique framed mirrors are all one off unique pieces, although I can recreate the lettering these frames are one offs sourced from antique fairs and markets from the UK and France and restored if necessary. 

The treasure mirrors are also unique pieces, the colours and shape can be recreated but no two will ever be the same. 

I frequently work on a commission basis, please feel free to contact me if you would like to discuss a piece unique to you.
