John Makepeace Daffodil Wooden Vanity Mirror
For your consideration this extremely rare piece of Modernist work by OBE FCSD FRSA John Makepeace.
An elegant and adjustable mirror is 52cm in height and 21 cm in diameter.
John Makepeace, one the country’s most influential makers talks about the evolving traditions in making.
John Makepeace’s career has been an adventure in wood. He first saw fine furniture being made when he was eleven, and then he visited the great cabinet makers in Copenhagen as a teenager. Design and craftsmanship came naturally to him.
Early professional recognition led to his work as a design consultant to the all India Handicraft Board, a founding member of the Crafts Council in the UK and a Trustee of the V&A, London. Early commissions from Templeton and Keble College, Oxford, Liberty’s and the Banque Générale du Luxembourg, were followed by major museums, corporate and private collections around the world.
John Makepeace was awarded an OBE in 1988 for services to furniture design.
John’s work was featured in two Victoria & Albert Museum exhibitions in 2012: ‘The Power of Making’ and ‘British Design 1948-2012 – Innovation in the Modern Age’. Condition
In very good vintage condition. As you can see from the pictures there is some surface wear and one small wood crack to the base, but all commensurate with age and use. The mirror is very good with only a small area of minor marking to the bottom left. The light anomalies on the mirror are just a reflection from the camera.
If you have any questions please feel free to message me at any time.
Many thanks, Lisa.

Here my wonderful model @katyarisdesign is showcasing the brass and fabric roller element of the Epoch Dressing Table. With a relatively messy approach to organising her things, the fabric surface prevents Katy from cluttering the top of the trough, ensuring her beauty products are accessible at all times and easy to use. Then she can sweep them back into the trough as she heads out to work, gliding the roller back swifty, saving time and keeping the space tidy. #finalproject#dressingtable#storage#roller#organisedchaos#organised#brass#fabric#mechanism#design#furniture#desk
