Italian Mid Century Mirror circa 1940
Carl Moore Antiques
Carl Moore Antique’s Stock# PAS268
This handsome mirror was hand painted using a technique called “verre églomise” translated as reverse painting on glass. Using a sheet of glass an artisan paints a design directly onto the glass while staying mindful that the pattern must make visual sense when seen from the opposite side of the glass, literally when seen in reverse. After the painting has been completed and is entirely in place only then is the silvering that creates a mirrored reflective surface applied. Please take a close look at the painted design to see that this large scale Italian mirror was created to hang horizontally.
