I made this mirror for my wife to keep her happy. I was for ever promising a new mirror in our bathroom and so for her birthday made her an ornate mirror.
The scrolls are deep carved and water gilded using 23crt gold leaf. The circles are brilliant cut and gilded with 18crt gold leaf, the background was hand painted black and the the mirror was chemically silvered. It makes the bathroom seem so much bigger and really does catch the eye for opulence. The glass is 6ft by 5 ft and quarter inch thick.
