Decorative Gilt and Venetian Mirror

Code: 11996


H: 161cm (63.4")W: 94cm (37")


Very unusual early 19th century mirror with etched, mercury glass Venetian panels set within a giltwood frame.  The top panel has a semi circular giltwood frame decorated with acanthus leaves and flowers and the bevelled mercury glass central panel has an heraldic-themed etching.  The lower section of this mirror has eight framed sections around the bevelled central glass with etched birds decorating the two top glass corners and butterflies the two lower corners.  In between each of these four panels is a recessed glass section decorated with a diamond design of stars and framed with scallop cut glass borders.  The bevelled central mercury glass has just a little age.  An amazing mirror!
