French 19th Century Gold Gilt Mantle Mirror
Dimensions: 57 1/2″H x 43 1/4″W x 3 1/2″D
A marvelous mantle mirror, finished in beautiful gold gilt, from 19th century France. This ornately decorated mirror boasts many design features. All four corners, sides and top are bedecked with intricate floral bouquets, from which leafy vines and flowers extend. The frame is trimmed with a twisted ribbon motif border, while a shaped edge borders the glass. This sinuous edge is a series of scrolls and acanthus leaves. The bottom of the frame is not finished. This is because the mirror was built to sit atop a mantle, the bottom hidden from sight. The mirror has had new glass installed in the recent past.
