Simply elegant, very tall, mid 19th century French archtop mirror with narrow, watergilt frame. Where this mirror has been dusted for more than 150 years, the gilding has thinned revealing the terracotta bole beneath as well as the brighter gold lines around the frame, which show where each sheet of gold leaf slightly overlapped, when applied. The original mercury glass is in very good condition with just a hint of age and gives an excellent reflection.
