Vintage Italian Venetian Mirror Italy circa 1910 (38 1/4"w x 63 1/2"h)

The handsome proportion of this vintage Venetian Italian mirror from Italy circa 1910 showcases Italian mirror making artistry as it may hang either vertically or horizontally as the etched glass decoration is entirely symmetrical. All of the mirror glass is original with wonderful shading, spotting and shadowing in the silvering of the mirror adding to its textural appeal. The main mirror glass is overlaid with a rectangular border of mirrored pieces that each feature a slender spray of flowers that lead to a procession of circles that gradually decrease in size. Please notice that in each corner of the mirrored frame as well as in the centre divide between the long sides there are individual pieces of mirror each with its own particular etched design. These pieces are necessary as they conceal the join of the separate mirror plates. The contrast between the etched areas that appear opaque and the reflective surface of the mirror glass is quite striking with a very modern flavor.
