Large Antique Gold Gilt French Louis Philippe Mirror

$3,476.13

About

A beautiful large Louis Philippe mirror that was made in France, circa 1880. The mirror has a pine frame smoothened with plaster. The glass is surrounded by a classic pearl beading and the lower stretcher is engraved with a cross engraving. The mirror frame is partially gold leaf gilt and partially gold paint gilt. The combination of these two types of gilding is usual in French mirrors from this era. The goal was to achieve more definition by slight variations in gold color and shine.
