This versatile antique French Louis Philippe style mirror is over 100 years old and can be used with almost any style of furnishing. The moldings and ornamental motifs have been water gilded with a high and low sheen gold leaf over red bole which shows through beautifully. There is an incised motif of scrolling vines and flowers in high sheen gilding with linear beading surrounding the interior molding. Louis Philippe’s reign was from 1830 to 1848, and the rounded forms and motifs were in abundance during his reign and several years afterward. Mirrors such as this would be found over fireplace mantels throughout the city of Paris in the mid to late 1800s.
CONDITION: GOOD. Minor damage and paint repair to bottom left corner. Very minor losses to gilding in other areas. Please inspect photos.
