Carved and painted in France, this pair of full-length pier mirrors are from the 1800’s. Each mirror is a single pane of glass, surrounded by a hand-carved Louis XV style frame. A pair of C-scrolls joined by a small floral margent separate each pane into two mirrors. The top section of mirror is 11 ½ x 12 ½, while the bottom section is 63 x 12 ½.
The top of each frame has an elaborate curled water leaf crown with fruited flower offshoots. A pair of gadrooned leaves emanate from underneath the water leaf. The sides of the frames are straight with rolled edges, except for curled leaves where the top and bottom mirror come together. The bottom of each frame is adorned with a shell medallion with décor of scrolls and curled leaves.
Historically from 18th century France, pier mirrors were used on walls between sets of windows, over a mantel or over a console. The mirrors have typical Rococo motifs used during the time of Louis XV. Our pair of full-length Louis XV pier or trumeau mirrors will highlight any area of the home. They retain their original French cream/gray paint with subtle gilt highlights.
CONDITION: Wear commensurate to age and use with age separations. Some losses and chips to paint as seen in photos. Two eyelets on the back of each mirror with wire for hanging.
