Antique French Louis XIV XV Style Carved Giltwood Overmantel Mirror
This is a beautiful carved giltwood mirror dating from the nineteenth century with its original gilded surfaces. Measures 51 x 28 x 2 in; 130 x 71 x 5 cm. Designed in the eighteenth century fashion, with elements of Louis XIV style, including Sun King mask at the base, and extensive organic motifs more in keeping with the Louis XV style, including feather plume finial, reticulated strapwork, reed-and-tie, leafy scrolls and c-scrolls. There is an old restoration to the protruding end of one organic flourish on the upper left side, and may be other minor old restorations.
