A tiny painting of St. Paul's cathedral, pre-photograph era souvenir of some lucky traveler's visit to the famed London cathedral - this back-painted glass or 'eglomise' panel shows wonderful detail to Sir Christopher Wren's masterpiece. If you've traveled there yourself, as I have (yes, the stairs are murder!) you'll love the charming souvenir this truly is. Whether you begin a collection of eglomise paintings/treasures (boxes, trays, etc., etc.) or just decide one is enough, we're your best resource for these wonderful mid-1800s treasures. Great to use, or to display. I have these tilted up and interspersed among my leatherbound books on our diningroom book shelves, and they add color and interest, and at the same time remind me of wonderful times I've spent in each place. Tiny miniatures are hand painted on back of glass, or are protected beneath glass, and are brilliant in their miniature splendor. Framed as these are in all that gilted ormolu (the tray top), they're a natural for decorative pieces. Love it, don't you?
