Italian Neoclassical Carved Giltwood Mirror


Italian antiques of Piedmontese origin are prized by knowledgeable collectors for their scarcity. This specimen mirror appears to be fully original and 'as made' in the last quarter of the 18th century, right down to its backboards; with the sole exception being its central plate, replaced for clarity. Exemplary hand carving, applied gesso and gilding.
