Degas No. 3 Mirror 'Krazy Kat', Gilded in White Gold, by Bark Frameworks



The Degas no. 3 mirror by Bark Frameworks is based on a design by Impressionist painter Edgar Degas (1834-1917), from his notebooks of 1878-79. The polymath of the Impressionists, Degas drew frame profiles throughout his career. His designs diverged from the ornamental styles of the period they were simple and elegant. Many of Degas' frame designs were never produced until Bark Frameworks decided to build them, after company founder and artist Jared Bark traveled to the Bibliothèque nationale de France in Paris to study the artist's original notebooks. The Degas no. 3 mirror frame is gilded in 12kt white gold over black bole. The mirror glass is water white (low iron) with a 3/4" bevel. Please note: Because every mirror we make is finished by hand, there will be slight variations in the finish -- each mirror is wholly unique. Customization available upon request.  

Additional Options

Customers can choose from:\nSize: Can be custom-made to size, please inquire.\nGilding: silver leaf, palladium, 12kt white gold, 18kt lemon gold, 22kt moon gold (similar to rose gold), or 23kt yellow gold. Paint/paint casein finishes (custom colors) are also available.\nFinish: light, medium, or heavy rub (to dull burnishing)\nBacking: D-rings straight up (recommended); wire across; or both.

Bark Frameworks

View Profile
Established in 1969, Bark Frameworks designs and produces frames for artwork and mirrors. Our commitment to innovative design is visible in every mirror frame we create. A Bark Frameworks mirror is a unique object. Every Bark frame is custom made at our 27,000-square-foot facility in Long Island City by craftspeople who have honed their skills for years, sometimes decades. Our LIC shop -- which houses two showrooms, design and art preservation studios, a wood shop, a metal shop, and a gilding studio – allows us to offer clients nearly-endless customization options for mirrors when it comes to size, material, and finish. In addition to our own original profiles, the frame designs of Edgar Degas inspired some of our mirror frames. After company founder Jared Bark researched the artist’s notebooks firsthand in Paris in the 1990s, we decided to build many of these never-before-produced frames. Now, these once-radical designs add elegance to any interior.
