18th Century Venetian Mirrors

Vagabond Antiques presents a pair of 18th Century Venetian etched glass mirrors.

A stunning pair of original Venetian mirrors, each of tapering form and etched with a floral border,

 

One plate shows a male warrior holding a dragon with a Lion at his feet, the other a female warrior holding aloft a chalice with sword at her side.

The fashion for decorative mirrors in Venice in the 18th Century was at its peak, and as such a demand for more elaborate designs upon the glass grew, not only were mirrors being used to look at your reflection but to reflect light and to make a statement of wealth and prosperity.

Here we have an exceptional quality pair of mirrors which have the original and now heavily foxed mirror plates,

They give a subtle reflection and leave the looker curious as to the figures and etchings on the glass, enticing you to look closer….

Italy, Venice, Circa 1760

Height: 74cm Width: 54cm

£4,450 For the Pair
