E-mail a Friend: CHINESE REVERSE PAINTING ON GLASS BOY PLAYING WITH FROG

Chinese reverse painting on glass of young boy playing with frog, in original frame and wood backing. Very early 20th century. This was called 'verre eglomise' after a Parisian picture framer Jean- Baptiset Glomy (d. 1786) who used a technique of painting on the reverse of glass, originally attributed to the Chinese. This is a charming and unusual scene of a child playing in a landscape with a frog, with a mirror background. Excellent condition $300.
