Baroque Style Mirror
Embossed gold metal frame in the Dutch style of the Baroque era
Cm 58 high x 32 wide
A 19th century Dutch Baroque style mirror with beveled central glass and gold colored metal frame with embossed, sculptural decoration. The raised designs were handcrafted using a technique known as “Repoussé” in which the metal (in this case either copper or brass) was shaped by hammering from the reverse side, creating decorative elements in low relief when viewed from the front.
The small size of this mirror makes it a perfect accent piece, for adding a flash of light, movement or color wherever one is needed.
