Exceptional Salon Mirror from Italy

Second Third of the 19th Century

This is a mag­nif­i­cent­ly exe­cut­ed Salon Mir­ror, with a won­der­ful, leaf-gilt sur­face and beau­ti­ful­ly bal­anced proportions.

The frame is mas­ter­ly carved in orna­men­tal and foli­ate dec­o­ra­tion, with a rich­ly craft­ed sur­mount with ros­es, leaves and rocailles, enclosed by cap­i­tals, the inner frame slight­ly arched. Each side has a fine car­touche in the mid­dle, a foli­ate shaped car­touche cen­ters the low­er part. Both sides have slight­ly swept feet with foli­ate decoration.

Espe­cial­ly intrigu­ing the wide faceted glass cut along­side the large, orig­i­nal mir­ror plate, elab­o­rate­ly adapt­ed to the inner shape of the frame. 

This mir­ror cer­tain­ly is a mag­nif­i­cent object of the 19th cen­tu­ry, rare to find with this par­tic­u­lar­ly ele­gant, nar­row size which makes it per­fect for rooms with less high ceilings.
