Daumier Romantic Bar Mirror | Antique Glass | Mirror-on-Mirror Frame
Classic Romance Turned Up to 100
The Daumier mirror is a classic design with the romance turned up to 100. Mirrors like these are the single best way we know of to cast gauzy, diaphanous light and a casual, glamorous mood like you might find at Balthazar, a favorite French bistro in New York's SoHo.
This time-honored design is distinguished by a deeply set frame of mirror-on-mirror glass with pretty reveals and long, glimmering baguettes.
The quality process is to individually antique each element. Lesser mirrors would be antiqued in large sheets. This mirror begins as individually cut and hand beveled glass, then each element is antiqued to mimic the natural aging of vintage originals.
The smoky, graphic lines are created by the antiquing process, which is naturally heavier at the edges. Add one to a dining...living...or powder room for instant soul

The lack of a standardized, generally accepted definition of “handmade / handcraft” destabilizes sustainability reporting, ESG dimensions and other urgent, data-driven concerns. We propose the best general definition for handmades, so far:
"True handmades are created, essentially, by human hands. “100% handmades” can use hand tools or even limited mechanical processes—as long as the artisan’s work and skills remain the most substantial value-add of the finished product." Keep reading for a rounded view of handmades, globally.
