A wonderful Louis XVI style mirror, circa 1930s. The extensively carved wooden frame is fully adorned with gold leaf. Beading and notched carvings decorate the border around the beveled glass. Acanthus leaves anchor the bottom corners, while rosettes and pinecone shaped finials cap off the top corners. The frieze displays foliate ornamentation and scrollwork and is topped with finely carved ribbon. Finally, a large, ornate floral garland hangs over the frieze and drapes across the mirror to the corners, where it comes down and terminates on either side.
Condition: Very good. Great patina on gilt. Few age spots on glass at left side.
