Attributed to Cristal Lupi Luxor (Antonio Lupi):
Vintage beveled Italian rectangular glass mirror with radiused corners attributed to Cristal Lupi Luxor founded by Antonio Lupi.
The main glass plate is mounted on a second, deep blue glass frame and both the mirror and
surround are in wonderful original condition, which adds to the authenticity of the piece.
There is a deep bevel to both the main plate and the glass frame, and in different lights this shows the blue glass in varied shades which beautifully illuminates the edge of the main mirror glass especially when the lights are on. A heavy piece of great quality, which would work very well in a contemporary bathroom, bedroom, foyer, etc.
A little history on the maker:
The late Antonio Lupi’s career started in the 1950s and the company is still thriving today. His original business involved working sheets of glass for furnishings in the industrial area of the Val D’Arno.
Glass accessories became a huge success and realising he had started an important trend he immediately changed his direction in production towards artistic mirrors, lamps, sconces and shelves. High level production imposed Lupi on the market and the current establishment emerged in 1969.
