This decorative mirror by Ongaro e Fuga is distinguished by intricate and colorful and Murano glasswork giving it a Venetian baroque atmosphere reminiscent of 16th and 17th century Venetian mirrors. Set upon a wood mount, the mirror also features glimmering floral and geometric motifs, entirely etched by hand with sandstone turners, that imbue the piece with resplendent verve.
This is an exceptionally well-developed and robustly carved mirror. It is very compact stylistically, and is continental and probably Italian. It is in excellent condition. The giltwork is original and shows the passage of time. Many of these mirrors are very restored...this is not. The candle holders with their spiked receptacles are of the period. This mirror is indeed a treasure, and makes quite a statement reflective of the Rococo period with its great curves, scrolls, and acanthus leaf deco
