So I was cruising Craigslist the other day, and saw this amazing wood and gesso mirror, and the owner wasn't asking that much considering it was a 40 inch wide mirror.
It was made with gesso and wood; a century's old technique no longer used. It's just easier and much cheaper now to make frames out of resin.
This mirror had lots of age cracks.
I love all of this chippy detail.
I had this mirror on the wall in the dining room when I took these photos.
Since then, I found the most wonderful mirror at Round Top, and this one went donw. It will be the mirror in the downstairs bath of our new home!
