Story Behind the Art:
'I'm Khalid Ali. As a child I was very naughty and would always do things my way. Even in school I was known as the mischievous boy and at home as 'Dennis the Menace. But as I grew up, I understood the value of hard work. My father was a very hard working person and he is the one who taught me the dignity of labor. It is because of him that I am here today. My father started a small workshop in 1959 where he crafted artistic furniture using brass foil embossing. He has been doing that for ages until I took over about a decade ago. Our designs are basically inspired from the ancient Mughal style. But today we incorporate modern motifs into the ancient technique and style.'

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
It's beautiful! And it's fair trade! The detail in the craftsmanship is second to none. I go to look in the mirror and find I spend time studying the detail on the mirror instead. Well done, and thank you.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent
I have a metal table I was trying to match and overall it is a great fit. The mirror has a brighter sheen than the table (from Arhaus), but it still works together really well. I was pleasantly surprised that it is a fair trade item and included the name of the artist that did all the detail work on the mirror. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Is this mirror silver-backed? Could I use it in a bathroom that gets minimal steam?fladysmom on Oct 27, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us fladysmom. The mirror itself is standard mirror glass. This mirror could be used in a bathroom without any problem.
No paper; the back is just wood. There is a hook on the back for hanging the mirror on the wall vertically. Hanging hardware is not included.

Are the sides straight? Could you hang three of these together with sides touching and no gaps?emc2tom on Jul 12, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello emc2tom, Yes, the sides are straight. There should be no problem hanging three together, but because the frame is textured, we can't promise no gaps. If there are, it should be minimal. Thank you for your question.overstockcustomercare1 on Jul 12, 2013
