19th Century Biedermeier Period Pillar Mirror, Germany, circa 1820 Nutwood Brown

About

During the Biedermeier period, mirrors were luxury goods, because of the high cost of the mercury silvering of the mirror glass. The price of the mirror glass was calculated by square inches, which clarifies the luxurious standard especially this type of large mirrors had in the Biedermeier style of living. They were not only used for their purpose, to look at yourself, but also to reflect the light, whether it was the daylight or the sparse light of candles and oil burners. This Mirror from Germany was crafted circa 1820-1830 in nutwood veneered with a beautifully mirrored veneer and two columns, one to the left and one to the right. The surface was carefully polished by hand with a French shellac polish. Measures: Height 120 cm, width 67 cm, depth 8 cm Reliable service at reasonable prices. You will be 100% satisfied with your authentic piece of art! Best wishes, Peter R. Schlaechter.
