This dressing table mirror is labelled "Boudoir Mirror, Burmese Silvergilt" in the Tiffany photograph album from the Paris Exposition of 1900. The caption describes it as "ornamented on every surface with small ornamental rings, in the centre of each of which is set a small green enamel disk, to represent glass ornament of the Burmese."
Tiffany & Co.'s display at the 1900 Paris Exposition was designed by Paulding Farnham, one of the firm's most outstanding designers.
Under Farnham's direction, Tiffany's eclectic silver at the 1900 Fair drew inspiration from Burmese, American Indian, Russian, Pompeian, Viking, Egyptian, Byzantine and Italian Renaissance designs.
Farnham designed a number of objects in the Burmese style for the Exposition, including wine coolers, candlesticks, and a silver-gilt vase which sold in these Rooms, 17 January 2008, lot 47.
