$3,354.16

About

A beautiful gold leaf gilt French mirror. It has the upper rounded corners typical for the Louis Philippe style. The mirror frame has an elegant pearl beading surrounding the glass. The most elevated part Is engraved with a Classic geometric Greek Meander pattern. Meander or meandros is a decorative border constructed from a continuous line, shaped into a repeated motif. It is also known as the Greek fret or Greek key. The mirror is completely gold leaf gilt. Parts are polished more than others, this gives the gold a different appearance. The more the gold leaf is polished, the more glossy it becomes. Also, it reveals more of the underlying red bole color. The difference in both gloss and color gives the mirror more definition. The mirror has its original silver nitrate silvered mirror plate Condition details: The mirror plate has been removed and both mirror and glass were cleaned inside and out. Minor repairs were done to the top of the frame and the lower-left corner. The quality of the gilding is very strong and shows very little wear. The mirror plate is authentic to the frame and is of very good quality as well. A few marks on the upper part. The mirror came without back cladding. A period pine back cladding is added in our workshop. This mirror is as close to completely original as possible. It is ready for use.
