Venetian floral style engraved glass mirror
Italian, early 20th Century
Height 100cm, width 56cm, depth 3cm
This exquisite wall mirror was crafted in Venice in a beautifully ornate style. The mirror features a central eight-sided mirror, taller than it is wide, which is set within a mirrored frame. The top of the mirror is adorned with a multi-part crown, designed in a foliate manner, while the bottom is appended with a shaped crest. The glass surfaces of the frame, crown, and crest are delicately etched with floral and foliate motifs, which catch the light in wonderfully varied ways.
