Artes De Mexico Mirror with Red, Yellow and Orange Tole Flower Surround


Fantastically uncommon flower encircled mirror of lacquered tole metal and gesso. Open frame work with depth and relief floral detail. Artes De Mexico was a San Miguel de Allende atelier where dozens of artisans created furniture in styles indigenous to the region. No two pieces were exactly alike. Each was signed by the artisan, and this mirror was signed "Saldana." The atelier was owned by Englishman Guy Schlee and Jeanne Valentine, his French wife. Jeanne Valentine was a force in reviving the nearly lost art of papier mache in Mexico.
