VERRE EGLOMISE: Glass which has been painted on the reverse to depict a picture or other design that shows through to the other side. The glass is often (but not always) gilded in gold or metal leaf. Sometimes shortened to “eglomise.” The practice dates back to the pre-Roman days, but the name comes from an eighteenth century French decorator and art dealer Jean-Baptise Glomy who is credited for reviving the process.
