Mother Of Pearl
Mounted in an original victorian frame (age related marks)
43.2 X 48.2cm
Freehand painted in reverse, onto glass, this piece was originally inspired by the ornate frame it’s mounted in, which is dated from the late 1800’s. Using the traditional Victorian method of gilding, this piece has been hand painted, then 23 carat gold leaf has been applied using gelatine and oil solutions to create a mirrored effect. Real mother of pearl shell has then been inlayed into the glass, giving this piece sense of depth and a beautiful effect when catching the light at different angles.
