Superb French Art Deco Mirror with Marble and Bronze Squirrels
This is a wonderful French Art Deco mirror and in excellent condition throughout.
The marble base is free of any chips, cracks or repairs, and the bronze mounts are also in marvellous condition and both have an excellent original vintage patina. The mirror also is without any chips or loss of reflectiveness, having now been replaced.
The charm of this item is of course the two fabulous squirrels, French stylized "ecureuil" with instant eye catching Art Deco appeal.
Each has been cast solid at an unknown foundry in France, however though I cannot locate any maker marks, the Le Verrier foundry in Paris would be a high candidate.
I have made no attempt to remove either of the squirrels and so they could quite possibly be maker marked to their base parts, which are screw fixed from the underside of the marble.
It is certainly an original example of the 1930s French Art Deco period and with an appeal which speaks for itself. The flexibility of this piece allows for suitably sized glass for example to be placed onto the middle section if desired, to make a picture/photo frame.
The oval mirror is supported by a slit to each inside vertical of each squirrels' tail and so is easily tilted to suit ones own visual reflection and can be removed for ease of cleaning or replacing if required.
The entire piece is a beautiful way to behold oneself and a fabulous display piece of French Art Deco interior design and as with all of my shops items it is available for shipping worldwide...
