Boasting an elaborate frame with classic rococo embellishment, this impressive mirror represents one of the earliest examples of bevelled mirrors from France. Stylized shell, floral and foliate motifs, the foundations of the rococo style that captivated Louis XV, abound from the arbalette-shaped crown to the acanthus fronds on each corner of the base. Original silvering adds a special touch!
Circa 1885-1895.
