This mirror was made in the 19th century by Perret and Vibert from Maison des Bambous .
The dragon is made out of bronze with a beautiful aged red patina. His body, covered with scales, surrounds a beveled mirror.

This object reflects the importance that Japan had over decorative arts in the last third of the 19th century. The country opened in 1867 and was represented during the Universal Exposition of Paris in 1878. Artists discovered this new culture and were very influenced by it. Japonism was very popular and bourgeois interiors were decorated with this style.

Perret and Vibert were specialised in this field. In 1879, just after the Universal Exposition, they started their production. Later on, in the 1890', they opened a store called the “ Maison des bambous ” (Bamboo House).
The dragon in this mirror looks like a japanese one, also called “ Ryū ” in japanese. The “ Land of the Rising Sun ” reached a high level of perfection in the art of bronze.
