African mahogany frame with inlaid ceramic tiles. I rigged the tiles so they can be swapped to match the room decor. These match the fireplace along the wall where the mirror is hanging now.

Stunning! Great design and brilliant execution.
BTW, how are the tiles fitted?

Thanks Gene. The tiles sit loose in the rear of the frame, behind the glass, and are held in place by a 1/4” plywood back. This approach let me use the tiles whole, without having to cut an arc in them.

I like it, I love it, I want more of it! – Renaissance man, Danny De Vito.
Kidding, it’s very, very nice! My wife said that she wants the same kind of mirror and I will have to try and do the same! But it will be hard to make it for me. Great job Dave!
