19th century French Louis Philippe period gilded mirror.
This is an exceptional antique 19th century French Louis Philippe period gilded mirror, circa 1860. In keeping with the classic Louis Philippe style this hand carved and gilt antique mirror frame has unusual bar and bead moldings. The frames beautiful patina is noticeable where years of polishing has revealed the red sizing underneath the gold leaf. The original mirror it self has wonderful natural age that is only achieved by being in existence for over a century and a half. It is fun to imagine all the reflections it has cast throughout the years. The clean lines of Louis Philippe style work very well in today’s decor and blends well with contemporary interior designs.
