Description

Louis Philippe mirrors are known for their rounded top corners and subtle embellishments to the frame. In the 1800’s, these types of mirrors were often placed above fireplace mantels in apartments throughout Paris. Due to its size, our French gold Louis Philippe mirror (55 3/8” 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 an understated floral motif on the quarter round 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 minor rubs and losses to gilding. Light buildup with slight loss of silvering to glass. The mirror is currently not rigged for hanging.
