There's a mystery around the origin of the sunburst mirror design. Some believe it's an invention of the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King. There's even speculation that it goes back to the celestial aureoles from 18th-century monasteries. We haven't decided what we think about its origin, but we do know it's an element we love. Our Soleil Mirror has metal sunburst rods, in an antique finish, with a convex mirror that will scatter light around a room.
