Antique Italian Urn and Vine Mirror

Antique Italian Urn and Vine Mirror
Magnificent antique Italian sugared mirror with a phenomenal painted urn and vine decorated wood frame. Over time, when a mirror reaches a certain age, the air molecules interact with the original mercury or silvering causing a sugaring effect. The end result is a beautiful, original antique mirror with an added shimmer and sparkle giving the impression of glitter behind the glass. This mirror is in very nice original condition, the mirror is in two sections as is the norm for a mirror this old and has an aged patina (see detailed photos). Due to its size, it would be ideal for a large entry foyer, a grand dining room, or over the fireplace in a parlor with tall ceilings. Great mirrors have been used for centuries to add depth and light to a space, and this one will do it to maximum effect. Italy circa 1850
