French 17th Century Louis XIV Silver Leaf Parclose Mirror

About

Elegant 17th Century hand-carved oak wall mirror. High-quality Louis XIV period framing with silver leaf gilding in 'a la Berain' carved design compliment with parclose mirrors. The silver leaf has worn through to expose the reddish-brown 'bole' or gilder's clay. Original mercury mirror insert. This mirror will make an incredible decorative piece for a dressing room or a dining room. In excellent vintage condition considering its age. Measurements: 21.25 in. high (54 cm) x 18.94 in. wide (48 cm). In the 17th Century, frames are assembled in the corners. The frames are not glued but assembled with "key". Those are usually oak and are positioned perpendicular to the cutting of the sides. At the rear of the frame, the wood is raw and traces of non-mechanical tools can appear there. Patina must be natural: Named "hare dress", it is usually dark brown or beige and is not uniform. (Ambiances picture might not have the actual size of the mirror).
