Win a beautiful French antique mirror from The French House, York

We’ve got an exciting opportunity for you to win a beautiful French antique mirror from The French House, York. The French House York is celebrating 25 years of trading with an event at their showroom on North Lane Huntington on Saturday 25th May. 2019 The team invite you to join them from 10am till 4pm on the 25th May, where customers will receive discounted prices matching those of 25 years ago and a glass of Sancerre!

The French House began trading in 1994 from a warehouse north of York. Realising the demand for their French finds, father Stephen and son Marcus Hazell opened their first shop on Micklegate in 1997, followed by showrooms in London. They boast one of the largest ranges of French antiques in the UK, including a large selection of beds, mirrors, lights, tables ranging from 17th to 20th Century available to view in-store and by appointment in their warehouse.

The French House team, which also includes daughter Caitlin and Stephen’s wife Kathryn, pride themselves on giving a bespoke and unique service. They can adapt and restore pieces to fit with your style and needs. With a host of highly skilled tradespeople available to adapt the old into the modern home. “That’s a service we offer that others don’t. If a table is too long, we can cut it down, we French polish, upholster and we deliver and install, which people appreciate, especially if it’s a huge mirror,” says Kathryn. Visit the French House website for more information.

Win a beautiful antique mirror!

In the spirit of celebration, this local family business with a French connection is offering a choice of two mirrors to suit your taste and style for one lucky family. You can choose from one of these two very tempting options:

Option 1: 1800’s Tassel mirror – This early 1800’s water gilded mirror is decorated with carved wooden tassels. Due to its age it also has lovely colour and wear. This rare and unusual mirror is a little bit wonky, which we think adds to its charm! (Value £280)


Option 2: Oval LXVI style mirror – Circa 1900 oval mirror with new mirror glass. This is a classic Louis XVI with motifs of floral wreaths and crossed torches. (Value £260)
