A rare pair of exquisite antique Chinese export reverse mirror pictures, decorated with scenes of court figures at leisure on a terrace, re-framed,
China, late 19th / early 20th century.

Why we absolutely love them
Their sparkling mercury mirror plates, the delicacy of detail and brilliance of colours on these mirror paintings are simply astonishing: the scenes almost look animated, as if they were a cartoon on your iPad.


For a comparable pair of pictures of the same quality and possibly from the same workshop, see Christie's London, 9 June 2005, lot 203 (£12,000)
