Orange might be the new black but orange is for walls and not this arched gold finish mirror. The metal finish on this mirror is hand painted in sultan gold. Just the right amount of gold in a matte finish. Not sure I would like this mirror in orange so let’s keep that color for the walls. The unique arched shape of this mirror makes it visually interesting but so do the antiqued glass blocks. Not the perfect mirror for making that last minute check before you leave the house. Instead this mirror looks vintage and adds a touch of mid century style to your space.
Arched Gold Finish Mirror
The earliest mirrors date back as far as the Stone Age with volcanic glass. By the Bronze Age mirrors were made from polished discs of copper and other metals. It wasn’t until the 1st century that glass mirrors were backed with lead for reflection. And in 1835, silver glass mirrors were invented by the German chemist Justus von Liebig. His invention involved the application of a thin layer of metallic silver onto glass through the chemical reduction of silver nitrate. This silvering process was adapted for mass production and led to greater availability of affordable mirrors to the general population. So it’s been many years in the making for the common reflecting mirror. And we went ahead and set it back centuries with our arched gold finish mirror. Set in a unique shaped metal frame, fourteen block mirrors are distressed and antiqued to create that old world look for your space. No thank you orange, I’ll take the gold mirror.
