Chinese Rosewood Mirror

This Chinese mirror was made in Rangoon from rosewood and reverse-painted glass. The rosewood frame is extremely heavy and carved in a subtle bamboo pattern.  The mirror was part of a series of 7 that was placed near the entrance to a Chinese-Burmese home.  During the British Colonial period, many Chinese immigrated to Burma from Guangdong Province to work for the British.  Many prospered and eventually built luxurious compounds in the Chinese style.  As transport was difficult and expensive, these houses and shops were furnished from abundant (and excellent) local materials, such as Teak, Rosewood, silk, and stone inlay.
