Mid 19th century French quatrofoil shaped mirror with narrow, watergilt frame and decorative upper and lower cartouches. Where the mirror has been cleaned for over 150 years, the original gilding has thinned revealing the cream and terracotta layers beneath. The decorative floral and foliate cartouches feature a queen's face at the top and the original, sparkling, mercury glass is in superb condition and is bevelled to follow the shape of the frame.
