I came across this source of fabulous glamorous mirrors from Dilettante. The company is a collaboration between two Los Angeles based architects, Elena Coleman and Libby Kountzman.
The mirrors are manufactured locally in Los Angeles. They are water-jet cut and the cursive is laser etched. Priced between $800 and $1200, the sizes are:
1'-4" x 1'-11"
2'-0" x 2'-10"
1'-6" x 1'-8"
2'-3" x 2'-6"
The quotes read:
"who ever loved that loved not at first sight?" (christopher marlowe)
"shall i compare thee to a summer's day?" (william shakespeare)
- they are limited edition with the edition numbers etched in the bottom of the mirror
- they are 1/4" glass mirror - not acrylic
- they are frameless and are mounted on 1/4" masonite with hanging wires attached
