Offered for sale is an incredible early 19th century French Louis XVI Oval Carved Cushion Mirror. The mirror is centered with a beveled oval looking glass, set into a mercury gilded inner frame. The outer frame holds individual mirrored panels all with original beveled edges alternating with pierced carved panels. The upper quadrant is finished in a pierced ribbon carved crest surmounting a hand painted panel. The panel features an artist signed French watercolor pastoral scene.
This mirror is a near match to another mirror that we also have listed. They would make a magnificent flanked pair or stunning used individually.
The mirror retains all its original glass but the watercolor, although hand-painted is of later origin. The frame has had minor restoration and touch-up.
Size: 32 ¼" Height by 25 ½" Width.
