This is a large barbola style mirror & utterly gorgeous & individual. Mirror, mirror on the wall…. Which is the prettiest mirror of all?! Barbola is the craft of making small models of fruit or flowers from a plastic paste. It is a gesso work decoration that refers to the frame not the mirror. This type of decoration was popular at the turn of last century up until the 1950s. You have the choice of hanging with the large decoration at the top or bottom with fixings on the back to do so.
