If I had a hammer...

Where can I buy a hammered-silver, round mirror for a Christmas gift?

I know this is rather specific, but I have Googled, EBayed, and Etsied my heart out and checked every home decor store in town.

The mirror should be fairly large (to fill the space above a mantel), round, and of course by "silver" I mean silver-coloured not the actual metal. I want that hammered look as shown on this
piece of jewelry, only in a mirror frame.

Ideally, I'd rather not spend more than $200, and would need to source it in British Columbia, Washington State, or online.

Somewhat above your price point, but otherwise, this hammered aluminum frame round mirror by designer Billy Moon seems to fill the bill.

could you get a mirror cut to fit into this tray?

Ooh, bunny hugger, that mirror is exactly right. I'm going to see if there's one any cheaper (and will leave the question open a bit longer, for that possibility).

paulsc, that piece is beautiful, but they seem to have a different definition of hammered metal...it's more scuffed and distressed, so doesn't look like the lamp I'm matching.

Good idea, dino might, and certainly within my budget. Maybe I should just buy her a tray, since they're 10x cheaper!
