French Early 19th Century Gold Gilt Mirror
A stunning early 19th century carved French gold gilt mirror. This mirror's frame is carved with a simple, neat twisted ribbon motif that surrounds the glass. This glass is the original mercury glass and has been stacked one on top of the other, given the technology did not exist to create panes large enough to fit the long frame at the time of the piece's construction. Both the glass and frame have an exceptionally well-aged patina that make this mirror truly remarkable.
