"Deer in the Shade, " Highly Rare Art Deco Mirror with Sculptural Relief

About the Item

Stunning and very rare, this high style Art Deco mirror features a pair of deer under a spreading tree, all alive with a silvery shimmer that is entrancing. The background is reverse painted in black and the sculptural details are in molded glass, with a lovely texture. We have seen only one other example of this mirror in the past, which was executed in colorless glass. The glass is mounted on wood panel.
