Antique French Louis Quinze or Rococo Gold Gilt Mirror with Facetted Glass

$3,964.01

About

A beautiful antique French mirror in Louis Quinze style. It has the asymmetrical ornamentation typical for Louis Quinze and Rococo. The double-arched top features an intricate crown with motifs such as rocailles, shells, flowers, and acanthus leaves. The frame has a beautiful color that is made by a combination of gold leaf and gold paint. The gold leaf has the red undertone, the bole layer shining through. The gold paint was made by mixing gold dust with shellac. The different shades of gold gave the frame more definition. The whole frame has a wonderful patina and is in exceptionally good condition. The mirror plate is original to the frame and has a silver nitrate silvered mirror plate with a facetted edge and is in very good condition. There are hardly any spots and only very few minor scratches. A truly unique piece with stunning gold color.
