FREE FORM MIRRORS OF THE 50'S






LES MIROIRS ANNEES 50, FORMES LIBRES
I really love the 50's mirrors by or in the style of Gio Ponti, the extraordinarily talented mid-century Italian designer. The soft curves and gentle modernism make a statement while the thin frames spell sophistication and class.
The next two mirrors are the same style, one with a blue mirror border, the other kept neutral.  It is interesting to note that all these mirrors are Italian.
Some curlicues add whimsy to the next two pieces
This one by Gio Ponti

In a more typical 50's style, this particular piece is framed in neutral glass mosaic

  1. Just shows that good design never dates...they are all so beautiful...especially like the one with the blue border. Magnifique!
