Late 19th Century Ornately Carved Giltwood and Painted Italian Mirror


A large late 19th century Italian, probably Florentine, highly decorative superbly carved giltwood cushion mirror. This mirror consists of a cresting to the top, superbly carved with two lions at its crest. This leads down to a deep, superbly carved giltwood and ivory painted cushion frame decorated with scrolling foliate. The mirror has original bevelled glass in all sections and both the frame and glass are in excellent condition for age. The frame has beautiful patina and minor loss of paint and gilt in areas which signifies its antique age.
