gold leaf mirrors

adding shimmer and style with gold leaf mirrors
The glass mirror or "looking glass" has been around since the first millennium. Before then, one had to gaze into a polished brass surface or into a pool of still water to see his or her reflection. Mirrors and reflective items have played an integral part in several historical legends and myths. We can imagine that old Narcissus would have an even harder time tearing himself away from his reflection if he were looking at himself in one of our beautiful mirrors, framed with gold leaf!... read more about gold leaf mirrors >>

Exquisite framed mirrors on this page are reproductions of eighteen century historical designs. From Tuscan style framed mirrors to free standing cheval mirrors all of them are distinctively detailed. Framed mirrors were expensive and rare objects for a small elite under the reign of Louis XIV.

Hundred years later elaborately framed mirrors could be found in more than 70 percent of European town homes. Ultimately, mirrors conquered urban interiors because they offered what such places lacked most - space. Framed mirrors brighten up and enlarged small rooms. Often placed between two living rooms mirrors formed one of the most gracious interior arrangements. The public imagination was not short on decorating ideas engaging mirrors. Women embellished with framed mirrors their salons, sleeping alcoves, offices, stairwells, and dressing areas.
