About

This beautiful antique Louis Philippe mirror was made in Southern France and dates approximately 1870. The frame is partially gold leaf gilt and is adorned with wonderful elements. The sculpted cartouche or crest on top is centered upon a large scallop shell within a scroll and flourish surround embellished with open flower blossoms. The frame has a serpentine shaped top with rounded upper corners typical for the Louis Philippe style. The lower corners are rectangular and flanked by elegant scrolls. The inner edge surrounding the glass features a classical pearl beading and the outer edge shows a twisted rope pattern. The most elevated part of the frame has a delicate floral etching. The frame is partially gold leaf gilded and partially gold paint gilded. This is original to the mirror and common practice with this type of mirror. By using to variations of gold color more depth and definition was achieved. The mirror plate is original to the mirror and is a silver silvered thick mirror plate. It is in very good condition with very few spots and scratches.
