About

This beautiful antique mirror was made in France around `1890. It is a pure Louis Philippe mirror with its upper rounded corners and elegant frame. The most elevated part of the frame has a floral engraving and a classic pearl beading surrounds the glass. The mirror has an ornate crest that features C scrolls, acanthus, and floral elements. The mirror frame is completely gold leaf gilt and the gilding is in good condition and of high quality. The engraved parts were polished to a higher degree of shine to achieve slight color variations and enhance definition. The red bole undercoat shines through here and there and gives the gold a warmer appearance. The mirror has its original glass and pine back cladding. Condition: The mirror is in very good authentic condition. There were minor repairs done to the right and left upper corners. The gilding is very strong and shows only a little fading. The glass shows some spots and minor scratches but suits the mirror frame well. The glass plate is a silver nitrate silvered plate (no mercury) The back cladding and glass were removed in our atelier and the mirror was gently cleaned inside and out. The glass was reinserted and the mirror is now ready for use.
