the Alba convex mirror

In All, Mirrors by Arif

The Alba convex mirror is small but contains a lot of glitter and depth. The frame was a great shape but it was plastic and took a considerable amount of resin to give it heft and solidity. It was gilded with gold metal leaf and then given a thick crust of yellow, topaz and straw colored Venetian rods. The tips are studded with unusual “exploded” glass spheres.

The Alba convex mirror is about 10.5 inches in diameter. It is being shipped to my Atlanta showroom Ainsworth-Noah. Call 404-240-2137 for more.

Jewelry for walls!

The Alba convex mirror is named for the Italian word for dawn. Surely dawn is a beautiful thing wherever you happen to be. But in Italy the dawn is touched with gold….

In Venice, the Grand Canal at dawn.
Rome at dawn
