Eglomisé is a highly delicate technique of applying silver and gold leaf to the back of the glass. The result is a mirror with a whimsical, ethereal quality - altering as the light falls across it.
The painstaking gilding work by our specialist Eglomise artist results in a dancing work of art.
The Verre Eglomisé technique is named after the 18th-century French art-dealer Jean-Baptise Glomy (1711–1786) who sold drawings framed by glass borders glinting with gold and whom made popular the technique that dates back to Roman times.
These mirrors are completely customisable, and can be made to any size and to any specification.
