Antique French Oval Gold Gilded Louis Philippe Mirror

$2,155.67

About

A beautiful antique French oval mirror with handsome ornaments. The top ornament is centered upon a shell pediment flanked by acanthus and floral elements. The lower ornament has the same design elements and is smaller of size. The most elevated part of the frame has a floral etching and the glass is surrounded by a pearl beading. The frame is completely gold leaf gilded. Some parts are polished and others are not. The difference in gloss emphasizes the etching and moldings in the frame. The ornaments are partially gold leaf gilded and partially gilded by the use of gold paint. The whole frame is patinated to achieve more depth in the color. The mirror has its original thick facetted glass with silver silvering. The mirror plate is beautifully distressed with a fine cracked appearance.
