Pair of English 18th Century Time Worn Frames with Later Distressed Glass

About

An impressive pair of English time worn gilt picture frames converted to mirrors. Each piece has been professionally converted using custom cut, artificially aged mirror plates and backboards. Each mirror also comes with custom fitted backboards and hanging eyelets and would look stunning on either side of a fireplace or similar. A wonderful sized pair with fantastic patina. The glass is distressed however still very usable. Please note that the horizontal lines visible in the glass is a reflection of the studio and not present in the glass itself.
