Antique 19th Century French Oval Gold Leaf Gilt Mirror with Faceted Glass



A beautiful antique French oval mirror that was made in France, circa 1890. The mirror frame is adorned with highly detailed ornaments that depict scrolls, acanthus, flowers, and leaves. The most elevated part of the frame has floral and cross etching. The mirror is mostly gold leaf gilt and patinated. The gold leaf is polished to different degrees to achieve variations in gold color and gloss. The silver nitrate silvered faceted mirror plate is original to the frame. The mirror plate shows a few small marks and a misty spot. It is a simple yet elegant golden mirror. Condition details: The glass was removed from the frame and both mirror and frame were cleaned gently. Small touch-ups were done to the frame. The glass was reinserted and a new pine back cladding was added to protect the mirror plate. The mirror is now without damage and in a good antique condition ready for use.
