Eglomise

The artwork really drew me into this room. As you may already know it is eglomise - a french term meaning glass gilded. Per Wikipedia, it's a "process where the backside of the glass is gilded with gold or metal leaf using a gelatin adhesive. The result is a mirror-like, reflective finish in which designs are then engraved." I think I am more familiar with the poorer cousin version - such as Budweiser mirrors on dormroom walls. Love these striking purple and coral green designs from Soicher Marin (Designer Amanda Nisbet, photography by John Bessler, Traditional Home March 2009)

Modello Designs offers a class called Elegant Inspirations where they teach mirror patination with pattern, glass etching, gilding and reverse painting. The gorgeous image above is via Design Amour, the artist is Regina Guray of Garay Artisans.

My hasty search for eglomise at lower price points didn't yield much (besides small items such as coasters, boxes, etc.) Would love to know if anyone knows of other sources of it - especially framed pieces for a wall.

Julian Chichester makes some beautiful eglomise furniture pieces, as does Ironies. All of Chichester's mirrored finish come in the eglomise option, which is my favorite.

I am particularly taken with their Larson table with the eglomise top (http://www.julianchichester.com/pages/us/product/177); temple coffee table (http://www.julianchichester.com/pages/us/product/183); Jane Churchill Ebury mirror (http://www.julianchichester.com/pages/us/product/445); their Brighton mirror (http://www.julianchichester.com/pages/us/product/257)
