A stunning early-eighteenth century mirror from Holland. Its finely carved pear-tree wood is painted with a lustrous black. The mirror is original and wears its past proudly, still intact after over 300 years and covered with foxing from oxidation and weather over time. Excluding the loop at the top of the frame, this mirror can hang vertically or horizontally to add variance to both contemporary and traditional interiors. A true statement piece to add history to any space. Note that this mirror is more like a painting than a functioning mirror - due to the aged glass one’s reflection is barely visible.
Note: Mirrors have been photographed facing fabric, a technique that reveals any age spots in the glass. In some cases, this may create the appearance of an empty frame, but each mirror is complete except where explicitly stated.
Condition and wear consistent with age and use.
