We are so pleased to present this set of Antique Walnut Frames with Sponge Decoration, Containing Mirrors. This is a Matched Pair from the 1870’s. This pair of all original high Victorian era, deep Walnut Framed mirrors are just spectacular. A real decorators delight and rare find. Done in 3 layers with 2 different sponged decorations. The outer top level is done with a cream color and has been sponge decorated with gray and a rusty red. The middle portion is a sponged walnut color. This layer is decorated with a central spoon carving decorated in white. The inner level is golden tone in a stripped pattern. The original wood backing has been covered with a tan paper. This exceptional pair of framed mirrors would grace any interior. Good deep Walnut frames are hard to find even here in New Hampshire. This is one of the only matched pairs with sponge decoration I have found in a good long time. They just are not out there to be had. Here is your chance to own a magnificent matched set with sponge decoration. I know it looks like they are not mirrors... but I HAD to cover the mirror to take photos. I took 50 pictures then said phooey! cover them. The mirror is in good condition and very reflective. The photo with the shaker is taken without the paper.
CONDITION: There are a few nibbles of the painted areas, slight spacing on several corners... slight... They show very well and with a proper cleaning and polishing they would be darned near perfect!
DIMENSIONS: 15 ½" x 13 ½" total outside frame mirror measures 9 ½ x 7 ½"
