H: 130cm (51.2")W: 116cm (45.7")


Early 19th century gilt French margin mirror with both outer and inner frames decorated with acanthus leaf designs. Curling acanthus leaves and little flowers decorate the top corners and the lower corners are formed into a pediment with slightly incurved bottom edge decorated above with more acanthus leaves and flowers. The original mercury glass has some age but the central piece is bevelled and full of sparkles, still giving a very good reflection. This unusual and wide mirror would make an excellent overmantel.
