Antique rectangular French mirror, circa 1880, with gilt ropetwist frame. Where the mirror has been cleaned for more than 100 years, the gilding has thinned a little revealing some pale terracotta bole and cream gesso along the edges closest to the glass. The original mirror plate has some age in the form of light shading and streaks but still gives a good reflection and this very contemporary-looking mirror can be hung portrait (as photographed) or landscape.
