Find a good sized Antique Gesso Painted Mirror

Antique Gesso mirrors are typically traditional and elegant looking mirrors with large and ornate frames.
Most of the Gesso mirrors that are available today are from the Victorian era. These ornate frames look very decorative and add a unique touch to your decor.
The "gesso" means "chalk," which is one of the key features of gesso, a carved or molded relief frame. Hence the name Gesso mirror. Gesso mirrors are often found in rectangular shape in addition to other shapes like ovals, hexagons and other irregular shapes. The rectangular mirrors usually feature a crown displaying a relief of an animal, flowers or flourishes along with a base below the mirror that changes the outline.
Gesso mirrors became popular in the late 18th century with the Art Nouveau period.
