Several weeks ago, I was shopping at the Restoration Hardware outlet and came across a beautiful and very large peacock mirror. For its size, it was reasonable priced although it was still out of my budget. However, that does not mean I have stopped thinking about it or wanting one of these iconic style mirrors. I was unable to find a good history of peacock mirrors but I believe they originated in Indian Palaces. According to Restoration Hardware they are "inspired by the fanned tail feathers of a peacock - known as "the bird with hundred eyes". Whatever their background, I love them for their intricate design and sculptural quality.
