French 19th Century Transitional Gold Gilt Mirror
Blending elements of Louis XV and Louis Philippe, this extraordinary French 19th century gold gilt mantel mirror is extravagant without being pretentious. An exceptional carved asymmetrical ‘S’ crest with flowers and acanthus leaves crowns the mirror with similar ornamentation gracing the sides and bottom. The mirrored glass is original and beveled with some signs of aging. The gold gilt is brilliant with phenomenal luster and glow.
