Yes, I love old mirrors - and not just any old mirrors – but those that have personality…
….the kind that the silvering on the back is worn and isn’t quite worthy to use to catch a good glimpse of yourself in.
I love the details of the old pieces, like the mother of pearl inserts in the wood handle (above) the thick beveled edge on a plateau mirror (above left)….
…and the chunky old gesso frames that mirrors are often framed in (above). And the chips and paint loss don’t bother me one bit!
Next time I will share how I am using these sweet pieces of the past.
Till then, XO.
