A pair of extremely well-preserved mirror applications - Venice around 1750




Christian Eduard Franke-Landwers Christoph Freiherr von Seckendorff


The pair of mirrors with the curved candlestick arms is a fine example of the exuberant Venetian Baroque. The excellent wood carving art of the frames is complemented by the finely cut and polished, originally preserved mirror glasses.

Venice has been a metropolis of glass production since the Middle Ages. The technical progress of the local workshops in the 17th and 18th centuries allowed ever larger mirror surfaces and the glass artists refined them with artistic engravings into sought-after luxury items for the courts of Europe.
