I could not buy this Superb Art Deco Guilloche Enamel Bronze Ivory Hand Mirror quick enough when offered to me! ***** Sorry , Now Sold *****
Such an exceptional & amazingly handsome piece of Art Deco!
One could only imagine the house that this piece was initially purchased for! One did not buy a piece like this and take it home to a 1930’s 3 bedroom timber house.
More than likely a top shelf New York , Paris or Austrian penthouse apartment , adorned with the most exquisite art deco furniture , furnishings & decorative arts. With this exceptional dressing table mirror being ‘100% at home’ amongst the finest of the finest ~ that the absolutely amazing art deco period ~ had to offer the wealthiest of the wealthy.
Yes , this piece rates that highly. For ‘what it is’ ~ you will not find too many better , anywhere , unless it is jewel adorned. Yes , this piece rates that highly.
Fine engine turning lays behind the exhaustive enamelling. Beautifully framed in worked bronze with a black enamel border.
Apart from using this stunningly beautiful hand mirror as intended , whilst “at the dressing table” or whilst dressing ~ due to the considerable size , this may well be used on display in a ‘common room’ in one’s house , whilst not being used in the bedroom. Options , are always a good thing.
A beautifully depicted bronze cherubs head & face greets the owner when the beautiful back is presented. An amazing pattern , reminiscent of the just ended art nouveau style , graces the the surrounds of the cherub & is accentuated by the contrasting black and white enameling of the complicated scroll work decoration!
The same & similar black enamelled pattern applies to the finely worked collar joining the mirror head & the beautifully hand turned antique ivory handle. Accentuating the colour , texture , material & total difference between above and below the collar.
This Superb Art Deco Guilloche Enamel Bronze Ivory Hand Mirror is of substantial size and by no means small in anyway. Standing at a full 9.5 inches tall or 24.13 cm’s x 3 inches wide or 75.cm’s ~ as mentioned , this is of very significant size & there is absolutely no reason why this exceptional art deco mirror cannot be used whenever need be!
An extremely tactile piece , it is near impossible not to pick it up whenever the eyes meet this handsome piece ~ it simply draws the hands towards it though iron to a magnet ~ an automatic response.
