Antique French Eglomise Flower Mirror
$1,450.00
Verre Églomisé, the French term for the process of applying both a design and gilding onto the backside of glass. The comes from the 1700’s French designer, Jean-Baptiste Glomy (1711–1786). The back-painting glass, actually dates to the 1400’s and was used in jewelry making. Our French eglomise, bow front flower painting, has unfortunately suffered 2 large cracks, which did not stop us from hanging it at home, for the last 20 years. Beautiful original water gilded frame, which could make for a wonderful oval mirror, should you opt out of the cracked painting?
