It is the bold scale and dramatic presentation of this antique French Louis Philippe painted mirror circa 1880 that gives it such visual power and magnificence. The artisan who created this mirror chose a color palette of gold leaf, cream paint and rouge red to highlight the architectural inspiration of the frame as well as the extravagant Louis XV style of the cartouche. The arched top of the mirror features concave corners with scrolls that accentuate the inward curve on both the left and right. The cartouche has a thrilling design of asymmetrical elements arranged so they appear to spray out and up away from the frame with a mixture of scrolls, flourishes and shell motifs accentuated by the various colors used to increase the sculptural effect. This organic burst is balanced by the regular pattern seen in the sides and base of the frame with a series of raised cabochon bosses highlighted with gold leaf set within a patterned border and flanked with the gold leaf on the exterior of the frame as well as the narrow band of gold leaf beads known as "les perles" in France also embellished with gold leaf. The lower corners also have a tall scrolled flourish using gold leaf and the red rouge to emphasize the distinct shape that relates it to the cartouche at the top. The original mirror glass has the customary speckles, sparkles and foxing that make antique glass that make French antique mirrors so desirable in an interior. Measures: 44 1/2" W x 72" H.
