French 19th Century Carved Wood Mirror
A beautiful and elegant early French 19th century carved wood mirror of naturalistic style, retaining it's original mercury plate. The mirror was purchased in unrestored condition and the original gesso and water gilding had absorbed moisture, therefore had become unstable and had to be removed. Whilst removing the original Gesso, our restoration team began to really appreciate the quality of the refined, very well proportioned, crisp carving throughout the design. We therefore have decided to leave this mirror in this highly decorative appearance. Of course, the mirror can be fully re-gilded at our studios with newly applied Gesso, re-cut and detailed as it was originally. The frame would be water gilded, burnished and toned (using 23.5-carat gold) to a very high standard. This would incur additional cost.
