French 19th Century Gold Gilt Mirror

French 19th Century Gold Gilt Mirror

French over mantle mirror with ivy motif and original mercury glass. Gold gilt wood mirrors are made of wood, then rubbed with a white plaster - like material, next they were painted with a rouge paint which the gold gilt adheres to. Over the many years of dusting and cleaning the mirrors, you will begin to see a rouge color from under the gilt. In this particular mirror you can see the layering that goes into a gilt wood mirror.
