every time i see one of these uniquely shaped mirrors i’m suddenly stopped dead in my tracks. there’s just something so striking, and so feminine about the curve and shape of their pretty brass frames. i did a bit of research on them and i believe they are called an F.A.33 mirror, originally designed by the legendary designer Gio Ponti in 1933 for prominent lamp and glass manufacturer FontanaArte. i’m not certain, but i think they were then made popular throughout the 1940-50’s because the mirrors i keep finding online are labeled as ‘mid-century modern 1950’s italian designed’ mirror. i’ve also been seeing some similar, modern ones with a sleek, radius round corners, and those are quite lovely, too. i think the vintage version may be quite rare, because they are also quite pricey, so i’m going to keep my flea market eyes peeled for one of these pretties — i’d just love to own something so classically beautiful.
