Remarkable pair of extremely large 19th Century Oval Florentine carved gilt wood mirrors standing 2.3 meters high.
European Circa 1880.
Extremely impressive, this decorative and rare pair of open carved oval gilt wood mirrors are of typical Florentine design, having flowing scrolled acanthus leaf carved frames in excellent condition retaining their original gilt work having a wonderful colour and tone with lightly foxed greyish later glass plates.
It would be a feat to find just one 19th Century oval mirror of this size let alone a pair, which goes without saying they would have been commission made for an exquisite residence and wealthy family of the 19th Century.
Extremely decorative and will work in both a contemporary and traditional interior design setting.
These mirrors have to been seen in the flesh to truly appreciate the scale and quality.
