Description

This small table mirror dates from the late 19th Century in France, but its curved shape is an allusion to the exuberant Rococo style of the 18th Century. The cartouche-shaped frame is beautifully decorated with turquoise, yellow, red, navy, pink, black and green coloured enamel.

The enamel has been applied using the complex champlevé technique which involves engraving designs into a metal backing then pouring vitreous enamel into the engraved lines to provide the colour. The enamel work on this mirror is particularly intricate, depicting a variety of geometric patterns and floral motifs.
