Antique French mirror, circa 1820, with gilt rippled frame. Where the mirror has been dusted and the glass cleaned for around 200 years, the gilding has thinned, especially around the glass, revealing the teracotta bole and cream gesso beneath. The original mercury glass has very light age in the form of attractive waves but nevertheless gives a good reflection. This classic little mirror would work in both a traditional and a contemporary room.
