Grand scale from the elaborate Baroque-inspired relief work on the crown to the foliate and floral encrusted bordering at the base, this mirror remains in superlative condition even after 150 years!  The original hand-applied gilding is evident with amazing detail in abundance surrounding the the original hand-beveled mirror that survived in remarkable condition (rare for mirror of this scale).  One has to view the detail close up shots to truly appreciate the artistry with which this masterpiece was created!
