Mirror, mirror on the wall…who doesn’t remember this classic Disney catchphrase in which the Evil Queen vowed to steal the youth and beauty of Snow White? Well, what more perfect day than Halloween to recreate your very own Evil Queen moment? With one of these stunning mirrors, you just might find yourself gazing into your reflection just a little longer…
These mirrors are a mid-century classic with their gold and ornate detailing of flowers, columnar posts, fleur de lis elements. They are just the kind of thing you would see hanging on the wall in an old Greta Garbo movie. This is just one of many accessories in the interior decorating style called Hollywood Regency that has been shown in the designs of every home show and magazine of late. Lavish and very intricately detailed, these beauties were made by Syroco, Inc. of Syracuse, New York in 1965. They melded a plastic, painted gold compound into beautiful shapes and designs to create the beautiful, ornate, floral and columnar look you see above. These fabulous mirrors are works of art in and of themselves. They are back in fashion and definitely here to stay.
Don’t these lovelies remind you of Snow White? Just don’t eat the apple….Happy Halloween!
