FRENCH LOUIS XV STYLE CARVED GILTWOOD WALL MIRROR
Circa first half of 20th century
Item # 702EPD11P 


A profusely carved and very finely detailed mirror executed faithfully in the Louis XV taste, the gorgeous handwork was finished with a red bole and then gilded.  Probably crafted during the first quarter of the 20th century, the surface has developed a beautiful patina where the ruby hues come through the gilding in areas of wear, lending a gorgeous complexity to the surface that is most attractive.  A heavy bevelled mirror is set in the frame and the reverse is sealed in a yellow wash.  It is an intense strikepoint piece of unrelenting curvature with pierced flourishes of acanthus, opposing C-scrolls and chaotic foliage; a most refined acquisition for the classical hallway.

Measurements:  65” H x 39 1/2” W x 2” D

Condition Report:
Old repaired cracks to the cartouche.  Rubbing and wear to gilt throughout.  Bevelled glass with light scuffs/scratches.  Minor chips/losses, overall remaining in excellent condition.
