Produced only as master Italian artisans can produce, this stunning hall piece is actually two parts~ a display cabinet below and a mirror above, and what a combination they make! The beveled oval mirror is a study in Baroque opulence, with a cameo crest lavished by floral and foliates cascading down the framework of the mirror serving as the focal centerpiece above, and lavish scrollwork forming the support base on either side below, all with its original pastel paint and gold highlights. The same painted finish with gold highlights adorns the intriguing cabinet below, with a glazed display at the center backed with a stunning classical carving, and bowed top above supported by an elaborate gilded corbel, and flanked by quarter round open shelving on each side for a truly lavish overall effect.
Measures 95.5H x 46.5W x 15D; mirror 54.5H x 34W
