H: 53.5cm (21.1")W: 43cm (16.9")


Mid 19th century, silverleafed, Italian mirror with unusual shaped frame which has a triple curved top and curved lower corners and is decorated with a punched design. After more than 150 years of cleaning, the silver leaf has thinned revealing the warm terracotta bole beneath. The original, mercury glass has a little age throughout which is entirely consistent with the age of the mirror.
