Large Landscape Archtop Mirror

Price: SOLD  
Dimensions: W 179cm (70.5")   H 152cm (59.8")


Very unusual French, Louis Philippe period (1830-48) archtop mirror in landscape form with wide, gently outcurving frame decorated with partly geometric and partly floral etched gilt design and with beading along the sight edge (edge closest to the glass). After almost 200 years of dusting, the gilt has thinned revealing the warm terracotta tones beneath. The original mercury glass mirror is in very good condition with just a little age and sparkles when it catches the light. This mirror would work over a wide piece of furniture or as an overmantel above a large fireplace.
