Musharabia Revision

This elaborate Middle Eastern mirror needed to be increased 12″ in height to fit a particular opening. This involved curring the mirror in half, adding a matching inlaid ebony section in the middle with a new screen of micro-turned ebony, bone, padauk parts. The 500 plus pieces were assembled into frames made of pewter, bone and ebony inlay. We matched the original work, where all the small parts (many 1/8″) are not glued together and held in by compression alone, like a loaded spring. Yikes.
