The art of filigree is deeply embedded in Portugal’s history and culture, and Boca do Lobo came up with a new round mirror with such a modern design that pays homage to this technique. Being Portugal one of the few countries that still treasure this meticulous craftsmanship, it is obvious that the value of the pieces made with the filigree technique is certainly remarkable.
Boca do Lobo loves to honor ancient crafts because it adds up an extra special worth to their gems, and this time the design brand started off the year with a brand new filigree creation, the Ring Filigree round wall mirror.
This wall mirror is just one of the countless Boca do Lobo’s brilliant creations of this remarkable technique. Born during the Roman period and passed down through generations of skilled artisans, Portugal now counts only with 12 craftsmen that master this craft. There are a lot of items conceived by machines naming it as filigree, but then there are things that engines will never be able to do.
When you think about filigree you don’t think about a big round mirror, you think about a small jewelry piece. It’s such a meticulous technique of which its handmade items take an understandable time to be completed but the final result is absolutely mesmerizing and something so unique that will add up a special touch to the rest of your luxury furniture.
