A nice fine carving Griffin (mitological figure with a lion body and a eagle head) complete with his original all parts (tongue, head, both wings and finally body/neck) which were carved separately and assembled with fine no head nails at that time.
Griffin: 57 x 33 cm
Mirror (only): 45 (wide) x 60 cm (high)
Wall depth: 12 cm
Total measurements: 81 x 53 cm
Solid Oak with a ebanized finishing (back wood frame + Griffin)
Original crystal "bisote" mercury rectangular mirror presenting signs of wear, back flaws compatible with his age and surely completing his charm as a antique.
Probably made by a master carving artist from late 1800's (1880/1895). I could assume french architectural style or Italian carving school for the same period.
