About

This stately Louis XV Revival French mirror features and elegant and intricately carved giltwood frame. The mirror is a study in Rococo glamour, with its asymmetrical, foliate decoration, C-scrolls, and cherub and bird accents. Highly unique and prized specimens of 19th-century French design, this mirror's grand proportion and luxurious design are certain to add a commanding touch to any interior. Large mirrors such as this are incredibly rare and difficult to find in such superb condition. A revival of the luxurious Louis XV style took place in France in the mid-19th century. It came about as part of the preference during this period, known as the Second Empire, for a mixture of styles from previous centuries. Largely due to the influence of Emperor Napoleon III, who wished to have his name associated with the classical grandeur of Rome and cement his place in French history, Eclecticism reigned as craftsmen revisited the most opulent styles from decades past and created their own elaborate versions. Artisans found their inspiration in the designs of many time periods, including the Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo and Neoclassic Louis XVI. Inspiration also came from the near and far East, as the treasures of China, Japan and Constantinople made their way to Europe. circa 1860. Measures: 51 1/2" wide x 4" deep x 71" high.
