Small, antique, French mirror, circa 1820, with gilt ropetwist and basketweave layered frame and floral and foliate corners.  Where the mirror has been dusted for 200 years, the gilding has thinned revealing the terracotta and cream gesso beneath the gold leaf. The original mercury glass has medium age but still gives a fair reflection.
