Antique French oval mirror with shell cartouche
Antique, French, oval mirror, circa 1880, with dark, burnished gilt, outcurving frame with a narrow row of beading running around the sight edge. The high cartouche has a central shell flanked with curling acanthus leaves and flowers and there is a smaller floral and foliate decoration at the base. The original glass has some age in the form of a few dark dots but still gives a good reflection.
