Beautiful French guilloche enamel and bronze hand mirror with inset portrait miniature. High quality and heavy bronze mirror with luscious ornaments of ribbons, laurel wreath, laurel leaves, and flowers. Simply scrumptious guilloche enamel in a lovely soft shade of coral. I particularly love the shape of the beveled mirror. The mirror is lovely to view on both the front and back sides. The bronze has not been polished and has a fabulous aged patina. The mirror does has spots of oxidation from 150 years of use, but it adds to its beauty and charm. The only flaw is a small piece of floral ormolu above the portrait on the left side is missing. I did not even notice this until I was listing the piece. It does not detract from the piece at all. The mirror measures 14.5" long by 4.75" wide----an impressive piece!
