Hello. I was hoping to hang this in our bathroom. Our bathroom has a shower that is used often and we have an ok ventilation system. Would this mirror and frame be able to hold up over time with a wet/humid bathroom? Thanks, Sue

Asunta Pelaez was first taught by her husband's family. 'Then we united our skills and labor. I realized that the more I practiced, the more this craft won me over, offering me tremendous gratification. Now I consider it a way of life. This whole process demands incredible patience and attention to detail. My designs are inspired by nature, and by traditional scenes from my town and region. I feel very proud of the works that I create.'

This mirror is very pretty but was too small for where I needed it to go. Had to return it..Read More
Much prettier in person than photo would suggestRead More
The frame is beautiful. If hung sideways the mirror distorts reflections.Read More
The Cajamarca Frost reverse-painted mirror is a stunning example of folk art. The mirror frame is more beautiful than its photographic image. Our home is an eclectic mixture of important works of world artistry and this mirror both complements and contrasts with other elements to bring particular focus to the piece and to provide a visual and practical anchor to the space. Lovely, lovely.Read More
I was drawn to this mirror by it's unique presentation and the various colors it came in. I was doing over my son's room after he moved out (finally a guest room), and I went with a blue/silver pallette. The mirror is colorful. It has enough "check me" space. I love that it is giving someone the opportunity to display and sell their work. I have not seen this painted glass technique before and I liked it.Read More
I am very pleased with this mirror! The colors are vibrant, and it is most unique in its affect in the room. The room in which I placed it is green, so the blue and red accents were needed to create a more colorful palette. It is beautiful and eye-catching. It was just what I needed in the room!Read More
It's elegant, and different, as not that many people are familiar (as yet) with Peruvian decorated mirrors. It's just lovely. Others mentioned it was not large enough, so pick a prominent spot so you can enjoy it. We found it to be the perfect size.Read More
I was so pleased with my purchase. The hand painted detail was more than I had been expecting for the price! It came in a very timely manner, and the packaging was "over kill", I guess to ensure no damage while shipping. It's a great conversation piece! Would definitely keep shopping the Novica dept. of Overstock!Read More
The Mirrors were beautiful! I ordered 2 to use above my lamps in my bedroom and they did not match exactly (because they are handmade) so if you plan on using 2 in one spot be prepared for each one to be somewhat unique. Beautiful colors, and design.Read More
This mirror is absolutely beautiful. Just as I was hoping to go with other Peruvian items I have ordered. As always, Overstock comes through!!Read More

Hi. I was wondering about the shipping time on this item. Normally, I get overstock products really quick. I was wondering if this was coming from Peru or if it was in one of your warehouses. Could you please give me an estimate on arrival if I order this. I live in Louisiana. Thanks. Kris
