Large Antique French Gilt Oval Mirror with Floral Swags & Shell Motifs Circa 1860
For sale, a large and impressive French gilt and composition oval mirror in the Louis XIV style, circa 1860.
This fabulous mirror has recently undergone sympathetic cleaning, restoration and minor regilding with great care taken to maintain the integrity of the piece.
You may see from the pictures the slight wear to the gilding revealing the red bole underlayer used by the French within this period to accentuate the gold's appearance.
The mirror comes intact with the original bevelled plate and backing. A truly stunning piece which is not often encountered in this size. Please check the measurements as the pictures do not immediately reflect the proportions.
