A Convex Mirror

I'm a fan of antique convex mirrors. They're simple and sophisticated, and the perfect complement above a mantle, bed, or even mixed in with an arrangement of paintings on the wall. The most popular convex mirrors are the 18th century Federal versions. Some, which are topped with patriotic eagles, are ornate and very formal. A definite statement piece!

But personally, my favorites are the simpler styles. Usually a combination of black and gold, the only ornamentation are the 13 spheres encircling the edge, each ball representing one of the 13 American colonies.
