Tortoise shell has always been an expensive material because its beautifully mottled appearance appealed to people. The shell was very popular with the Victorians. They manufactured a wide variety of items such as fans, boxes, tea caddies, spectacles and photo frames.
The material came from the shells of the larger species of tortoise and turtle. The initial processing involved separating the layers of the scutes from the animal’s carapace by heating, softening the plates and flattening them in a press.
The mirror compliments our tortoise shell Sophie jewellery box creating a glamorous contemporary addition to any dressing table. We also love to combine it with our luxury Suzi B console table. Of course the tray comes in our fabulous Forwood Design gift packaging.
Lastly the mirror in tortoiseshell is exceptionally easy to clean. Just wipe with a dry cloth.
Please note, in 1973, the trade of real tortoiseshell worldwide was banned under CITES.
