Witch Mirror composed by definition of a Round and Convex Ice with a deforming effect.
The latter is part of a Golden Frame with Aged Patina, molded around its edges. Protruding half balls arranged at regular intervals decorate the hollowed out part.
This entourage is crowned with a Generous Fronton, dominated by an Eagle with outstretched wings. The bird of prey is encamped on a Vase with a flared body, placed in the middle of Leafy Volutes. The lower part of this Mirror is also Carved with patterns with rounded lines.
It will be noted that the Gilding suggests Discreet and Subtle shades of Red, adding to the Personality of this Ornamental Object. In addition, its Convex Glass allows a diffusion of Light different from other more common models, and a greater viewing angle. This is why - historically - this Trendy accessory was once called the "Third Eye", since it allowed bankers and merchants to monitor all of their offices or shops. Magical virtues were also attributed to Witch Mirrors, such as the power to observe servants in the absence of their masters, or the power to protect their owners. You will understand, we will offer ourselves through this Mirror much more than a simple element of Decoration ...
