50% OFF- Murano Dressing Table Mirror w twisted rope glass with gold leaf and silver
Was R9500, now only R4250!
This Murano twisted rope glass with gold leaf and silver dressing table mirror was made in Murano, Italy in the 1920's-30's. The mirror is almost magical in that the colour is an iridescent gold with shades of aqua. It changes with different light conditions.
The way that the art glass catches and refracts the light is in the tradition of Lalique and Tiffany’s Favrile glass as well as other glass masters.The importance of this piece is reflected in its weight and construction.
The mirror reclines at a 45 degree angle on a solid silver leg. It is mounted on a similar frame of silver with a wooden back. All appear to be original.
Detailed close up photos show the twisted rope design which surrounds the encasement of the beveled glass mirror with an inset of a silver frame surround which gives depth and perspective to the art glass.
This would make an incredible piece in a shop or jewelry store or as a special collector's prize for Murano art glass collectors!
