A Beautiful Antique French Louis XVI Style Mirror

On offer is a beautiful antique (early 20 Century) Louis XVI style Mirror.

The frame is constructed in wood with gesso, and has been painted gold. 
The gesso work around the frame is complete and in fantastic shape (as you see so many these days with lumps missing)! and has some very pretty detailing. 

It is a lovely size, beautifully proportioned, and the original high quality bevelled glass is in great condition for its age (just a small amount of foxing here and there).

A true French classic!


Frame Height: 100 cms

Frame Width: 66 cms

Height of Glass: 59 cms

Width of Glass: 40.5 cms


Considering its age, this piece is in great condition.  There are just a couple of small issues to mention.

  Where the cresting at the top of the mirror meets the frame, there is a small crack to the left hand side, and a small part of the gesso work (1 or 2 leaves) missing on the right hand side (please see pics 6,7 & 8).

There is a small split in the floral wreath about a 3rd of the way around on the right hand side above the torch (please see pic 7).

None of these issues are particularly noticeable, and do not spoil the overall look, or affect the stability of the cresting. 

As you would expect from a mirror of this age, there is a small amount of foxing to the glass (please see pic.10), which purely enhances its antique charm.


Shipping and Delivery

 The cost of shipping from France to the U.K (South Wales) is £30.  The winning bidder is more than welcome to collect their item directly from me (in Cardiff) at no additional cost to the £30, or alternatively I can deliver directly to your door at a very reasonable rate.  Please message me with your postcode for an accurate delivery qoute.


Unfortunately I am unable to deliver to Scotland, Northern Ireland or any of the outlying U.K islands.


Delivery can take between 4 to 6 weeksin the most extreme cases, however, I always aim to be quicker!



Would the winning bidder please be kind enough to make payment through paypal within 3 days of the auctions end, and also get in touch as soon as possible with their contact details and address, so that we can make delivery arrangements.


Please Note

I only deal in antique and vintage items from France.   Although I only buy the best condition pieces I can, obviously the nature of antiques can mean that some items may have some small signs of wear and tear, which are purely commensurate with age.  I will always highlight any issues with my pieces with close up photographs and descriptions.  All my items are treated against woodworm with a 20 year guaranteed product, regardless of whether there are any signs of activity or not.



Thankyou for taking a look, and happy bidding!
