the Vermeil convex mirror

In Mirrors by Mark Evans

The Vermeil convex mirror consists of five layers. Three of the layers are clear Venetian glass rods stacked over a gold metal leafed frame. Surrounding the central mirror is a ring of resin jewels topped with more Venetian glass.

The Vermeil convex mirror is about 16 inches in diameter. It hangs in my studio pending being shiped to one of my showrooms.

A crown for a Madonna made of gilded silver. French, 1880

Silver-gilt or gilded/gilt silver, sometimes known in American English by the French term vermeil, is silver which has been gilded with gold. Most large objects made in goldsmithing that appear to be gold are actually silver-gilt; for example most sporting trophies and many crown jewels are silver-gilt objects.
