This 18th century French mirror has a carved wood, gilded frame decorated with raised panels of intercrossing diagonal lines forming a diamond design and little curls of acanthus leaves set between raised decorative corners of shells and acanthus leaves. A raised, outset, semi-circular decoration containing smaller versions of the diamond and acanthus leaf patttern is found mid-way down each long side. The mirror is topped with a pierced acanthus leaf crest and the original, bevelled, mercury glass has medium foxing and age but still gives a fair reflection.
