Exceptionally Large Antique French Louis Philippe Giltwood Mirror

SKU: 521-24 Category:

SOLD

Description

Louis Philippe mirrors are known for their rounded top corners and subtle embellishments to the frame. In the 19th century, these types of mirrors were often placed above fireplace mantels in apartments throughout Paris. Due to its size, our French Louis Philippe giltwood mirror (65” H x 40” wide) would have originally graced a wall in a large Haussmannian style apartment.  The mirror is surrounded by a lovely gilt frame with floral and foliate motifs on a convex molding. This raised portion is flanked by two layers of cavetto molding, with a beaded border along the edge of the glass. Louis Philippe mirrors, with their restrained beauty, can be paired with just about any style of design.

CONDITION: Good antique condition with wear commensurate to age and use, including light loss of silver and buildup to glass. Minor rubs to wood frame, with age separations and old fills. Please see photos for details.
