A superlative example of the Classic Revival style, called the Neoclassical style by the Italian, this antique mirror was hand-carved then water gilded by talented Italian artisans and depicts a host of timeless motifs all around the frame, most prominently the urn surrounded by foliates at the crown. The original mirror adds a special touch, with hand-brushed silvering, but the frame steals the show with its fine display of artistic sculpture.
Circa 1850s.
Measures 52 x 34.5 x 2.5.
