Rococo style rocaille-shaped gilt bronze mirror
French, 19th Century
Height 77cm, width 48cm, depth 3cm
This fine gilt bronze mirror is crafted in the Rococo style. The mirror features a gilt bronze frame modelled as a rocaille and richly moulded with pierced foliate decoration: scrolling acanthus leaves wrap around blind cartouches, while intricately finished flowers adorn the edges.
The gilt bronze frame is inset with a shaped mirror. The gilding is in exceptionally fine condition and accentuates the elegant Louis XV Rococo style design with a brilliant radiant quality. As such, this fine antique mirror represents the best of royal French design, particularly with the beautiful rocaille shape.
