kannadi brass 8″ cast metal mirror in solid brass housing

The metal alloy, a precise combination of molten copper and tin, is a closely guarded secret – and was said to have come to an ancestor in a dream. Once cast into a flat piece, the metal is laboriously polished by hand for a number of days, using only oil and water, until there is a transformation from the rough metal to mirror . This change from a rough lusterless surface to a highly reflective mirror is nothing short of fascinating.

This mirror is mounted in a 8 inch diameter, machined brass frame.
