A subtle twist on a timeless classic, this Louis Philippe mirror has four rounded corners, whereas the traditional Louis Philippe only has rounded upper corners. Also of note, the mirror has several layers of alternating cavetto and quarter-round moldings, but no additional ornamentation. Louis Philippe mirrors are known for their subtle embellishments, which are generally carved into the most prominent molding. The giltwood frame has a lustrous gold color with some areas of mottled patina that is accentuated by the slight loss of silvering to the glass, giving the mirror added character. Our giltwood Louis Philippe mirror was hand-carved in France, circa 1850, and would be a fantastic addition to any wall of the house. It can be paired with any style of interior design from ancien regime to contemporary.
CONDITION: Good antique condition with minor nicks and rubs. Slight age separations and loss of silvering to glass, most noticeably on the left side of the pane. Traces of old restoration and touchups. Rigged for hanging.
