This beautiful antique gold mirror from Anthropologie has been on my wishlist for years and this year, I finally decided to get it for my home office. Now that I’ve had my 3ft antique mirror for a few months, I wanted to write up a few thoughts on it if you’re contemplating the purchase!
Anthropologie Gleaming Primrose Mirror Review
The mirror comes in 3 colors: gold, silver, and antique black. All three colors have an antique/brassy finish to them. It has beautiful detail throughout the trim and a pretty rich weight to it.
What size mirror should I get?
The Anthropologie primrose mirror comes in 5 sizes: 3ft, 5ft, 7ft, 6ft floor, and a 28-inch bathroom cabinet. I have the 3ft mirror in my office and it’s the perfect size for over a fireplace or on top of a vanity. I think the size it’s very versatile and I love that I can move it between a few rooms when I want to change it up.
The 5ft mirror would be a great statement piece in the dining room or fireplace in a larger room with higher ceilings. It’s a little too short to use as a floor mirror unless you plan to angle it up on the floor.
The 7ft mirror is a very large statement piece that would look great in your bedroom or used as a floor mirror throughout your house. It’s heavy (200lbs!) and very wide, so it’s not something I would move around throughout your house. This size is on my wishlist for my future office to use for try-on hauls. I love that you won’t be able to see the sides of the mirror when taking photos or video.

- 112.5 lbs.
- 6′ Floor: 72”H, 38”W
- 88 lbs.
- 7′ Large: 84″H, 64.25″W
- 200 lbs.
- 2.25″ projection
Is it worth the price?
This is obviously personal preference, but I think the Anthropologie mirror it’s 100% worth the splurge. However, I do think it’s a purchase to really consider before impulsively buying it. You want to make sure you have the right space for it fits your decor style. I have been lusting over this mirror for years and now that I own it, it’s something I wish I got sooner. It makes such a statement in the room, but is also timeless and I know I will use it it my home forever. I have the 7-foot mirror on my wishlist but right now it’s too large for our current home.
** Note, Anthropologie does charge $150 for shipping and delivery of this item. I think this is more of a value when ordering a larger size in the mirror, because it’s very heavy and they can place it in the correct room for you!

I love the statement this 5ft Anthropologie mirror adds to a fireplace mantel in your living room. This is a great option if you have higher ceilings and want a statement piece for your living room. You really don’t have to add anything else to your mantel for it to feel complete.
