Deco Era Nina Claiborne Handpainted Mirror


PRESENTING a  UNIQUE Art Deco Era hand-painted mirror by Dallas Interior Design Legend……..NINA CLAIBORNE…… circa 1930.

This Mirror is in SUPERB ORIGINAL CONDITION.

It was custom designed and hand-gilded and hand-painted by Nina Claiborne for the Obenchain Family when they built their Mansion on Armstrong Parkway in Highland Park, TX in 1929.

Ms. Claiborne was the interior designer for that home and she was also attached to Neiman Marcus.

She also did an original signed floral painting (still the family ownership) and she hand-painted a number of wooden ceiling panels (also in our Collection) and a number of hand-painted floral closet doors (also in our Collection).

The Mirror is made of solid wood, which has been hand-gilded and has hand painted flowers and poppies on top of the gilt work. The edges of the mirror have a hand-painted wave effect.

The piece has its ORIGINAL mirror glass and it is very heavy.
