Ormolu & Guilloche Mirror
Item BE41: EXQUISITE gilded ormolu and guilloche hand mirror. ‘Guilloche’, invented by CARL FABERGE’ in the early 1800’s, designed a ‘rose engine’...a machine which turned metal while engraving it, leaving a spirograph-type pattern etched upon the surface. This piece is obviously from that period...and it is further enhanced with tons of gilded ormolu! A seriously GORGEOUS piece! It is in perfect condition, measures 13”L x 3 1/4”W(mirror). It is completed with hand painted roses. THE most feminine mirror of all! Shipping additional.
