An original and genuine West Country 'boody ware' mirror, dating from the early 1900s.

 

'Boody' (or 'boudy') was a word that originated from the Northumberland and Durham area in the 19th century, to denote a piece of broken china or earthenware. By the 1880s it began to be used for decorating jugs, bottles, boxes, and in this case, mirror frames. This tradition particularly flourished in the north east and south west of England. Examples of 'boody ware' were included in the Tate Britain exhibition of British folk art in 2014.
