Featured Review on Colonial Mirrors
MARVELOUS PIECE OF ART
I have been impressed with the style of the artist Flora Polo. Excellent color combination that has totally changed my family room to a colonial style. For that reason I bought more items from her collection and the collection of other Peruvian artists because they are professionals in the finishes and details. Thank you Novica for bringing these amazing products to the market.
