French Sunburst Mirrors

I’m piggybacking on Debra’s post over at Common Ground today!

It’s chock full of photos and historical information about these awesome decorating accessories.  Please check it out here.  I enjoyed it so much, it inspired me to share my mirror.

Here are a couple photos of the sunburst mirror that I have. It hangs on a small wall in my dining room. I purchased it at Crown and Colony Antiques in Alabama, when I was on a French antique buying excursion a couple years ago.  It’s not very large at about 24” diameter.  I would love to find another one for my daughter’s room.

Lots of decorating stores and catalogs have reproductions i.e. Wisteria, Ballard Designs, Ethan Allen and several others.


You can see them in so many designer rooms and I found a few photos of my favorites:

These are quintessential French and so iconic of the French look.   They certainly are back in vogue and have made a comeback from their ultra-modern resurgence in the 60’s & 70’s.
 (Groovy, Man!)

Thanks, Debra, for the sunburst inspiration!  You inspired me on Vintage Inspiration Friday!

Blessings,
Kim
