Description

These small and decorative wall mirrors are from Italy and date to the late 1700’s.  They have a simple rectilinear form adorned with carved scrolling motifs on the crown, at the shoulders, and flanking the lower corners.  A small, stylized Fleur de Lys rests at the top of the mirrors while small block feet support the frames.  All of this is covered in a beautiful, rich silverleaf, which is original to the mirrors.  The glass, though likely not original the frames, are old mercury mirrors, pre-1850.  The backs of the frames are painted in a lavender blue and each has a small loop for easy hanging.  Today, these small Italian mirrors have a classic yet versatile style, and they can easily be placed in a variety of interior designs.

CONDITION: Very good condition with minor wear and nicks to finish.  Mirrors are likely not original, yet antique with losses to silvering.
