Bistro Pier Mirrors

Pier glass mirrors get their name very simply from being designed to be placed on a pier, a wall between two windows that support an upper structure.
Bistro pier mirrors were designed to hang over a pier table which were tables supported by a single column or pier. They were long and tall in shape to fit the space. Pier glass mirrors were usually hanging mirrors or mirrored glass affixed to the pier. The shape in both cases was the same and design often matched that of the windows of the establishment. These mirrors were a common decorating element of the 18th-century homes and reception rooms.
