Late 19th century French gilt mirror with narrow ropetwist frame. Where the gold leaf has thinned through over 100 years of dusting, the red bole beneath the gold leaf is showing through giving the frame a very attractive diagonal banding of warm terracotta and gold. The glass is 20th century but gives an excellent reflection and this versatile mirror can be hung portrait or landscape.
