Description

Detailed botanical painting scrolls across this small table with two drawers. In reverse glass painting, the design is silk screened onto the back side of the glass. The painting is done “back to front”: details painted first, then larger color areas, and finally a background color. Reverse painting requires great care and skill, as the visual “surface” is painted first then layered over, so errors cannot be corrected. The art of reverse painting dates to the Middle Ages.

An heirloom to treasure from Peruvian artisans.

  • Beautiful Artwork and Well Made

    . . . . .

    This is a beautiful piece of furniture. We were looking for something unique and well made to be the focal point of our entry way. We loved how this piece looked on the internet but I have seen this type of glass painting done poorly, so I was concerned that the quality might not be the best. My husband and I were both so impressed with the quality of the art work and solidness of the item. The colors are bright and vibrant, the attention to detail is incredible and the color palette is striking. It is just what were looking for. We have already received several compliments on it. We could not be more pleased with this purchase.
