Pair of 18th C Italian Ebonised Sorcerers Mirrors

THE SCHOOL FOR SCANDAL
A large pair of late 18th century Italian sorcerer's mirrors housed in a their original sizable ebonized circular frames, with twelve reverse ground convex optics.

Sorcerer mirrors were an early 16th century creation, used to throw light around via the convex optics thus giving them purported magical powers, hence the name.

Circa 1780 in age and likely due to the frame styling to be Italian. Old woodworm is very much apparent but has long been treated and gone, along with some splitting and repairs. Both mirror plates have age related pitting and foxing.

8cm in depth and 47cm in diameter
