French 19th Century Gold Gilt Mirror
Dimensions: 56 1/2″H x 29 7/8″W x 4 1/2″D
This stately mirror is finished in brilliant gold gilt and features a cartouche that is second to none! Made in France, circa 1870, this beautiful mirror has an ogee top upon which the impressive cartouche sits. It is made up of a central splay of acanthus leaves, surmounted by a halo of flowers, with scrolled acanthus details flowing from its sides. The bottom corners are also decorated with acanthus motif details. The mirror’s glass is its original mercury glass, which has aged fabulously. There is plentiful foxing as well as sparkles found throughout.
