Through the Looking Glass
Antique mirrors were first known as ‘looking glasses’ and were first produced in Murano and silvered in Venice as early as the 16th Century, they were not made in England until the 17th century. In the 18th century there was a heavy tax on glass coming from abroad so old antique mirrors were recycled and larger mirrors were produced by creating frames which held several pieces of glass, this gave the illusion of a single larger mirror. When choosing a mirror for any room in your interior, keep in mind that mirrors give space...they don't take up space. Small rooms are instantly larger when a mirror is placed in it. So, don't assume that your small room will need a small mirror; just the opposite may be true.
