A Reverse Mirror Painting

Circa 1750

Original black lacquer and gilt frame

The mirror similarly painted as above with a portrait of an exotic beauty with meticulously coiffed hair and beset with flowers, combs and gold ornaments. Dressed in a rich red robe trimmed in blue and brown and adorned with a gold double fish ornament. A bird perched on her right wrist; and behind her a porcelain vase with lush peonies.
