SOLD P P/U... "The Hemingway Bar!!" 'Rusty' French Mirror...

395.00

"Paris is where you can learn, like Hemingway, to be poor & happy!! It just oozes history & tells of simpler times... Nostalgia rules supreme (totally suiting me,) for I'm forever chasing forgotten stories, all of which Paris has plenty!!

The Hemingway Bar is the notorious place where Ernest Hemingway whiled away many a drinking hour & hung with the likes of F. Scott Fitzgerald!! He was a pretty loose character, but of all his crazy antics, the most infamous is when he stormed the Ritz at the end of WWII with a few displaced soldiers, declaring the place FREE & ordering champagne for everybody - how cool is that - soooo LOVE this guy, & not just for the champers!!

Whilst refinishing this mirror, I wanted it to be different - like Hemingway; a little bit mad, a little bit artistic, but above all, a little bit wistful!! Deliciously ornate, I wanted it to look homely, epitomising all that is the golden age of The Ritz & indeed looking like it could have been hanging at The Hemingway Bar witnessing many a wacky shenanigan, but above all, allowing those glorious stories to be written into history!! This is why I refinished it to look like an old rusty provincial mirror that you see in the most obscure (& special) places!! You see, nostalgia & inspiration are part of our footprint, echoed by what Hemingway once wrote "whenever I dream of afterlife in Heaven, the action always takes place at the Paris, Ritz!!"
