Object Description

A large early 18th Century carved gilt wood Italian overmantle mirror

“A stunning rare example of a triple plate 18th Century mirror, the 3 original mirror plates have aged wonderfully to a soft, sparkly pewter like tone, the huge scrolling crest to the top is light, finely carved and retains its original gilding, when hung on the wall it has a delicate feel for such a large mirror as you can see the wall colour coming through the carved acanthus scrolls, largely untouched but for a light clean to the original gilded surface, you really get a feel for the age of this mirror from the construction to the back panels, a stunning example “
