As the austerity of the Louis Philippe style began to wane from the French Court, the reign of Napoleon III, France's last emperor, heralded in a new period of embellished decor that recalled most of the glory days of French design throughout centuries of history. This example, featuring the subdued embossed frame typical of Louis Philippe mirrors, boasts a cartouche depicting a baroque shell motif flanked by foliate sprays. The perfect way to add a little panache to your room!
Circa 1850s.
