French Louis Philippe mirrors, such as this giltwood version with floral motifs, are always in high demand; they are highly versatile pieces that mesh well with just about any style of interior design. Their subtle embellishments, in this case, a central quarter-round molding adorned with a continuous floral margent, are not overpowering, allowing the timeless shape and structure to hold prominence. Our Louis Philippe mirror has the traditional curved upper corners that soften the rectangular-shaped glass. A thin border of beading encompasses the mirrored section, but the rest of the moldings are without any embellishments. This giltwood Louis Philippe mirror can be hung on any wall of the house, including a bathroom, hallway, dining room, or bedroom.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with slight age separations and losses to frame. Minor touch-ups to the gilding, with some light losses that reveal traces of the red bole, a desirable trait. Light wear and loss of silver to the glass. Rigged in the back for hanging.
