Likely English circa 1815
Item # 803IVL13P 

This elegant Regency period pier mirror is a practice in contrasts, utilizing a pure black pigment over gesso against the bright silvered glass and vibrant gilded highlights.  Borrowing from the French, the mirror incorporates a twisting and wrapping of ribbon to embellish the columns and projecting crest, this over a panel display of anthemion set amongst diagonal tiling.  The old silvered glass is flanked by fluted columns culminating in Ionic capitals over bands of acanthus.  It is backed by nicely oxidized pine planks on the reverse.

Intended to be a strikepoint that both compliments the architecture and serves a real function for the entryway or living areas, today it remains a very sharp contrast point for the modern interior where classic design, a historical surface and precise craftsmanship bring much needed depth to an interior.
