Many American furniture manufacturers offer glass mirrors to match specific furniture collections, while others offer mirrors as specific home accents. Glass mirrors are specified here because many are made from reflective aluminum foil - these are generally regarded as being of inferior quality to the genuine glass item although can be just as effective.
Sunburst VS Starburst - Between the 1950’s and 60’s the sunburst mirror got a slight makeover similar to the mirror pictured below these mirrors became known as starburst mirrors. Usually they featured smaller circle pieces and other decorative features on the rays.. These mirrors however are still often referred to as sunburst mirrors. When you hear the term starburst mirror it is likely referring to a sunburst mirror but perhaps may have further decorative features.
The sunburst mirror has a fascinating history that dates right back to the 17th Century. During the 17th Century the Catholic Church began to use monstrances above the alter these elaborate designs were made up of decorative stands surrounded by glided rays of sunshine demonstrating what we know today as the sunburst style. These monstrances were often found in churches in Italy featured above the altar. The very first mirrors were very small and convex and it wasn’t until the late 17th Century that mirror production became more established and mirrors eventually increased in size.
