Adjustable Stadium Wing Mirror

Adjustable Stadium Wing Mirror



A brass Wing Mirror repurposed for use in the house.

The thick mirror has a raised looking glass with a bevelled edge which stands proud of its brass frame. The mirror is adjustable on two ball joints that are united by a pair of shaped brass bars. The straps are shaped to each end to form a socket to hold the ball joint and are united by a bolt and nut below each socket. This allows you to position the mirror easily to the perfect angle.

The ball to the bottom of the arm bars is fixed to a plate which would originally have been fitted to the side of a car. This is now fixed to a stepped mahogany base cut with a moulding to each step.

The back of the mirror is stamped 'Stadium Regd. British Made'. The Stadium company was formed in 1911, becoming a Private Company in 1929. At this date their address was 75/77 Paul Street, London EC2. Another, and probably later, address associated with the company was 30-36 Queensway, Ponders End, Middlesex.

There is little information available on Stadium's history but it would seem that they started off making accessories, such as this mirror, for the motor industry. By the end of WWII they were specialists in multiple mouldings producing a wide range of plastic items from door knobs and sunglasses to ashtrays and crockery. They were still producing motor accessories though with their stock including crash helmets and goggles.

The flexibility to move this mirror into many positions has given it a second life in the home, useful in a bathroom or on a dressing table. Early 20th Century.

Maximum size of the mirror is given. The mirror size is 5 3/4 by 4 1/4 inches (14.5 by 11 cm).
