Antique French Silver and Gold Leaf Louis Seize Mirror with Floral Garlands

$10,295.32

About

An impressive and rich decorated Louis XVI mirror that was made in Northern France in 1905. The mirror frame was made of solid pine, has a segment arched top, and was decorated with cast ornaments. The ornate crest features many classical elements such as arrows, goblets, acanthus, C scrolls, flowers, and leaves. A beautiful floral garland completes the crest. The frame itself is decorated with tied ribbon and floral elements. A Classic pearl beading surrounds the authentic glass. The glass is a silver-nitrate silvered mirror plate with a facetted edge. The glass plate shows many small spots and the brushstrokes of the paint used to fixate the silvering shines through slightly. The Mirrorplate is dated 14-07-1905 on the back. The frame is partially silver leaf gilt with a black undercoat. Remnants of gold leaf and gold paint are visible as well. Originally the mirror had a gold color. The silver leaf was coated with a yellow patina to achieve a pale gold metallic color. Gold paint and gold leaf gave slight variations in gold-tone. The whole color finish with a variety of gold colors, gloss, and patina gave the frame more definition. The gold paint has been washed off and the mirror now has a more natural appearance.
