This sumptuous Meissen porcelain mirror is a work of astounding artistry and rarity that would only have been created for the most affluent clients. Exquisitely hand-painted in polychrome with gilt accents, the bountiful frame is adorned with all manner of classic Rococo decoration, including a wide variety of highly detailed flowers, birds and putti, or cherubs. A pair of candle arms extends from either side, which allows the mirror to reflect candle light and illuminate a room.

Founded in the early 18th century, the Meissen factory was the first European ceramics manufacturer to produce "true" or hard-paste porcelain and remained unrivaled in terms of innovation and beauty for decades. Though the formula for hard-paste porcelain gradually found its way across Europe, the Royal Manufactory at Meissen continued to produce some of the finest porcelain works the world had ever seen. Creating such a mirror was a painstaking process, and the enormous decorative detail is an indication of the incredible level of skill attained by Meissen artists. A large item such as this would only have been created for the most affluent of clients. Considering the delicate nature of porcelain, this mirror remarkably remains in excellent condition.
