Mirror, Mirror, and the Walls

The Mirror Cabinet, Rosenborg Castle, Copenhagen, Denmark

Royal Reflections

The Mirror Cabinet in Rosenborg Castle in Copenhagen, Denmark, was furnished for Christian V. (1670-1699). It was the king’s dressing room, accessed up a winding stairs from his bedchamber on the floor below. Visitors were reflected in the ceiling, the walls and in the oval mirror in the floor.  During the Baroque period, the King’s suite often had mirrored cabinets, normally connected to the bedroom. The covered glass cup with the crown finial was produced in Nøstetangen, c. 1750.

Join Becky’s July Squares: Blue #31. There are only two rules. The photo must be square and it must somehow be blue (color, theme, concept, etc.). Thanks to Becky for hosting July squares. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with for October.
