Gazelle mirror

The Art Déco Gazelle Mirror from France around 1925 is a characteristic example of the style of the time. The frame is geometrically designed with chamfered corners and pastilles. A gazelle in a jumping position serves as the main motif and is artfully integrated into the frame. The mirror frame is original silver-plated, which is a typical feature of many Art Déco objects. The mirror radiates a certain elegance and modernity and is a coveted collector’s item for lovers of the Art Déco style.

The original mirror glass in the Art Déco style was often faceted, i.e. it had beveled edges and a certain pattern that gave the mirror a special appearance. This pattern could be geometric, floral or abstract and was often created by sandblasting, etching or cutting the glass. In addition, the mirrors were often surrounded by a decorative frame made of wood, metal or plastic that corresponded to the Art Déco style in terms of shape, color and ornamentation. Many of these mirrors were also decorated with plaster or metal ornaments to capture the shine and glamour of Art Déco.
