Antique Glass Art Mirrors
A reverse glass painting is created by painting a subject onto one side of a glass pane
which is to be viewed from the other side, or back-lit through the glass. It is an old art-form which instills a
sense of antiquity. It is also an art-form which requires the skill to naturally think and paint in reverse, traits necessary
to artistically render the image.
Painting on the reverse side of glass was considered a fashionable form of art in England,
France and other Europeans countries in the 18th century. Today, these artistic endeavors are found in homes, churches,
and museums displaying this early form of art.
Each picture is completely hand-painted with oil paint into images. No two
paintings are exactly alike. A prize for the collector and a must for the distinctive buyer.
All paintings are expertly framed with a quality wood moulding, covered by gold or silver
leaf finish. Other frames are available on a custom order basis. Of course the mirrors are silver-backed plate
glass that is free of distortion.
