The 17th century was a time of grandeur, extravagance and dynamism. In the world of art and literature, a move was made towards bold realism across Europe. While it is easy to think about the Baroque period in relation to music, portraiture and architecture, it is worth sparing a thought for the interesting and intricate furniture designs that came to prominence at this time. Indeed, a piece of original Baroque furniture that has survived to this day is a precious item indeed.

Why choose a Baroque mirror?

A Baroque mirror is often characterised by an intricate and intensely detailed frame. Featuring curves, carvings and possibly with depictions of anything from foliage to cherubs, we can say that a Baroque mirror will become an eye-catching feature in any home. Whether you choose to place your mirror at the end of a hallway or at the top of your stairs, in a bedroom or above your mantelpiece, there is nothing quiet or subtle about a Baroque mirror.

As for the materials used, it very much depends on whether you are purchasing an original Baroque piece or a Baroque-inspired mirror from the 20th century. The framing may be made from rich mahogany and giltwood or they could be made with plaster. The colours used on these pieces will likely be full of golden elements married with the darker tones of the wood or bronzed colours. This allows the finer details to stand out so they can be truly admired.

On our marketplace you may come across sunburst mirrors, rectangular mirrors, hand mirrors, and others originating from different countries in Europe, especially Italy where the Baroque style was perhaps most influential.

Choosing a Baroque mirror will enhance your living space, bedroom, bathroom or whatever other room you plan on adding it to. This is because Baroque mirrors are notable for their detail and grand status.

One benefit of choosing an antique Baroque mirror or a vintage reproduction is that you are making your home a more sustainable place. By opting for pre-loved pieces of furniture you reduce the demand for new mirrors to be made from new materials – which consumes precious natural resources.

Baroque items are built to last. By using quality wood such as mahogany and giltwood, you know that the mirror is going to be around for many more years, which is great because these items should also be seen as an investment. Paying a little extra for a Baroque item can be financially beneficial in the long term as the valuation of these pieces continue to rise over time. Just make sure you take good care of it.
