Vintage Federal Style Mirror
Of course, the mirror features a hand painted glass panel above the glass. In fact, these types of paintings go by the name “reverse painting” or eglomise for the French term. In other words, artists paint the image in reverse on a plate of glass.
In this particular mirror, a structure with a turret sits on a small piece of land surrounded by water. Two paintings of trees flank the image. Also, there is a nice painted border as well.
Eglomise Style Mirror
Additionally, this Eglomise style mirror has a beautiful wooden frame. Of course, it has carved columns on either side and a nice top molding.
Unfortunately, the frame shows an old repair. However, the repair is not really that noticeable, except when viewing the mirror from above or in profile. Please see photos.
Despite this repair, the mirror has a great look and shows nicely.
