French 19th Century Painted Neoclassical Style Trumeau Mirror with Carved Angels


This exquisite French painted wood trumeau mirror from the 19th century features an elegant classical frame, reminiscent of a Greek or Roman temple. The eye is immediately drawn to the triangular pediment, flanked with two graceful angels, with one holding a horn while the second one is holding a feather. The center is adorned with two smaller (and much chubbier) cherubs, holding a green colored wreath. The pediment is beautifully supported with two Doric style pilasters, topped with carved frontal heads. Painted in a subtle cream color with accents of yellow, green and red tones, the trumeau shows its old paint. The mirror is original and shows good aging throughout, yet, as the glass is clear, provides great reflection. Purchased in the south of France, we immediately thought that its large size and perfect proportions, delicate and refined carved décor, combined with its elegant Neoclassical influence, would make this French 19th century trumeau mirror a wonderful focal point in any home, perhaps placed atop a chest of drawers, a beautifully carved credenza or a large console table.
