A large dressing mirror Berlin

This is a large Biedermeier-style dressing mirror from Berlin, characterized by its simple elegance and clear lines. Biedermeier was a design movement that originated in Germany in the early 19th century and was marked by a rejection of the ornate, classical style.

A Biedermeier-style dressing mirror is typically made of high-quality woods such as mahogany, cherry, or walnut, and features decorative elements such as carvings, inlays, or marquetry.

This particular dressing mirror from Berlin was made around 1810 and is made of mahogany veneer on a softwood core. It features ebonized profiles, brass applications, and string inlay. The mirror is in an unrestored condition, with a strict architectural structure and subtle accents.

In Berlin, which was a center of Biedermeier design at the time, such mirrors were often produced by local furniture manufacturers or carpenters. They were a popular piece of furniture for the dressing rooms of the upper middle class and aristocracy who lived in Berlin at that time.
