Image from Alex MacArthurA gilt mirror with a matched gilt console. The mirror has lovely "foxing" or age spots in the original plate glass.
Above 9 images from Eloquence, Inc.A wonderful selection of mirrors available from Eloquence, Inc (in California, unfortunately!). I love the use of found objects in their displays - shells, coral etc. Oh, so stylish! An antique French mirror at home. It is mostly cream with gilt highlights. It has the original glass which is quite evident from the "foxing" or darker areas. I prefer mirrors that show age like this. Even larger mirrors such as this can sit easily on mantle pieces, no need to hang.
