The Captain's Mirror is one of the iconic designs available from BDDW (above, right). While it has many fans, its price keeps it unattainable for many. Enter Pottery Barn. Their new Channing Mirror is about a quarter of the price for a similar look...The Captain's Mirror from BDDW is available in two sizes (20" & 28") and two leather finishes — mulled and dark mulled. Last we checked, the Captain's Mirror was $1,200 - $1,600. Channing Mirror is $299 from Pottery Barn. It measures 32" in diameter and its frame is iron with a polished-silver finish and a faux-leather strap.
While the Channing Mirror is clearly an inferior product — its price and style will make it very attractive to many.
