About this item
Handsome, decorative, antique French cushioned mirror, circa 1840, with carved wood gilded frame. The outer frame is decorated with sloping teardrops and delicate beading and the inner frame is alternating lozenges and beads with acanthus leaf decorations at each corner, mid frame and forming a wide cartouche along the top. Where this mirror has hung over a fireplace for more than a century, the gilding has darkened to a mixture of chestnut brown and gold, revealing terracotta tones where the gilding has thinned. All the glass is the original, bevelled, mercury glass which is in excellent condition.
