Antique French Venetian Mirror from Auxerres circa 1890


The beautiful etched flowers on this unusual Venetian style antique French mirror echo the concave sections set within the overall rectangular shape. From delicate to bold the floral theme is readily apparent and surrounds the central oval mirror with its beveled edge. Please be sure to enlarge the additional photographs to see the rippled edge along the exterior edge of the mirror as well as the edge that surrounds the central mirror. The change in the treatment of the edges adds another level of reflection and sparkle to the mirror. This mirror was made in the city of Auxerres, south of Paris, notable for its stylish mirror production capabilities in the nineteenth century. Only the best mirrors were stamped as made in Auxerres and it was not even necessary to specify that Auxerres was in France because of the reputation of their mirrors. As this mirror possesses a balanced and symmetrical pattern it may be installed in an interior with either a horizontal or vertical orientation chosen to maximize its dramatic impact.
