Gilded French Large Mirror
France 20th Century
This gilded French mirror combines several styles but most closely resembles the 19th century Louis Phillipe taste. The crest is in the form of a pierced rococo shell within a scrolled cartouche flanked by small C scrolls and floral corner brackets. The rectangular body of the frame has an outer single gilded bead enclosing strips of mirror that are relief molded inverted spheres and six pyramid cut dividers. The inner gilded frame is cove and gadroon molded. The mirror glass is edge beveled.
An educated guess is that it dates from the 1st half of the 20th Century. It is heavy and very well constructed. The backboards are wood with corner braces.
Very good + condition. There are minor repairs in the central crest area and the gold leaf overall is lightly rubbed.
