The mirror is superb and amazing. The artistic quality is just unspeakable. It is so beautiful and just looks amazing in my sons vintage motorcycle room. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! However, the frame quality is not as nice. I can see why it was used as it goes with the mirror. I just think the mirror is outstanding and then it was put in a cheap frame. I would definitely have paid more for this item to be in a better frame :) I will probably replace the frame at some point. But like I said, the mirror is remarkable and beyond expectations.

About

Gilded Years

I started out as an Illustrator and Graphic Designer wanting something more concrete that I could wrap my hands around; something more challenging as well as unique. I was drawn to antique restoration and discovered a knack and love of gilding-- the history, the art, the process. My teacher, a master gilder of world renown soon hired me as her assistant/ apprentice and imparted her wisdom to me, helping me start to my career restoring on a large and small scale from furniture and frames to architectural gilding. I taught myself sign gilding and the art of reverse glass gilding (also called verre eglomise) as well as mirror making. While working on architectural and commercial interiors and exteriors is rewarding, I still need a creative outlet and now apply my skills towards making the works of art you see for sale here. Mirrors, carved pieces, detailing, glasswork-- all of these I create from my love of art and everything that inspires me combined with my love of the history, antiquity, and the artisanal process that gilding embodies.
