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.

I live near Washington, DC, and the area is full of National Parks, Monuments, Historic Sites, and Museums. Most of them are free to visitors. It is a wonderful place to spend a holiday if you have kids. The sites are managed by the National Park Service, which is celebrating its 100th birthday.
