A beautiful nineteenth century gilded oval mirror.
Highly ornate gilded gesso frame, with bows, foliate swags and scrolls and a Queen Anne inspired shell crest. Quite simply it's got the lot. Original gilding still there beneath the layers of history.
Stunning appearance and happily the original mirror glass which displays all the desirable markers of age that an old mirror should: foxing, occasional, negligible loss to the silvering etc. Lacking the original back boards to the rear, but, since it hangs against a wall, an imperceptible flaw. Easily repaired if required.
Amongst my other items listed is a pair of ormolu twin branch candle wall sconces, which would sit very well indeed with this mirror.
Measures an impressive 34 inches long by 24 inches wide.
An appealing decorative mirror and a must have for the country house interior.
