Barbola Painted Gesso (also called composition) and Wood Beveled Easel Mirror--completely original. Measures approximately 8" X 10 1/2" high; original beveled mirror is approximately 7" X 9". These frames have been described as hand-carved, but they are NOT. The frame is made of wood, and all the applied decoration is done in gesso, and then hand-painted. This one is unusual in that it is a rectangle, and you almost always find these frames in an oval or round shape. All the paint is original-beautiful shades of red, blue, green, grey, and pale yellow grace the flowers and leaves. An area 4 1/2" long on the top right of the mirror (see photos) shows some "spiders", and there are teeny "black dots" but the majority of the mirror is clear, and usable. Dates circa 1910-20.
