19th Century French Napoleon III Period Gilded Mirror is a magnificent example of the opulence of design that flourished during that era!  Beautifully sculpted with a foliate-embossed frame designed with an arched crown, it has been lavished with a stunning heraldic crest flanked by foliates, florals and cornucopias cascading down towards the shoulders.  The original beveled mirror with original silvering is extant, and in wonderful condition especially considering the age.  The frame continues around the entire perimeter so this mirror could be hung on the wall, even though it was designed to rest atop a buffet, console or mantel to provide a lovely reflection of your room while simultaneously creating a grand and captivating focal point.
Circa 1860s
