The rustic appearance of this hand-carved and painted Louis Philippe French mirror circa 1890 is most unusual. Please take a moment and enlarge and zoom on the provided photographs to see the details that give this mirror its distinctive appeal. The frame encloses the original antique beveled mirror showcasing the passage of time in its customary manner with speckles, spots and fogging impossible to reproduce with new glass. The frame itself is highlighted with three dimensional carved details including a lovely vine motif whose gentle tendrils climb upward along both sides as well as across the upper and lower horizontal sections. At both the upper left and right corners there is an additional decorative device of added scrollwork that visually frames the central cartouche. The handmade charm of the cartouche is immediately evident by the intent upon symmetry but the execution is a tad bit unbalanced giving the entire mirror a naive and unsophisticated appeal.
