Mid-Century French Decorative Ceramic Mirror Attributed to Atelier Les Cyclades (circa 1960s-70s)
Mid-Century French ceramic decorative mirror attributed to Atelier Les Cyclades, Anduze, France (Circa 1960s-1970s). A contemporary of Mithé Espelt and François Lembo, Joseph Zobel created this ceramic frame with inset enamel decorative shapes to form this compact, colourful, square mirror. The glass centre is enclosed by broader concentric square frames, each which has the effect of visually enlarging the charming mirror overall. On appearances, the piece has a homespun craftsman's quality about it, yet, at the same time, there is a subtle sophistication as well. The mirror would be a delightful addition to your home or work space - certainly a conversation piece as well. In very good overall condition consistent with age and usage. Please enjoy the many photos accompanying this listing. Upon request a video will be provided.
