Louis XVI style water gilded mirror
About this Piece
A water gilded period style mirror after a Louis XVI girandole.
The frame is boldly pierced and cast with foliate scrolling ornament, the crestings modelled as ribbon tied crossed quivers and torches with tassell terminals. Entirely hand carved in mahogany with further detailing and definition carried out in the gesso layer. The 23¾ carat gold leaf has a ‘bright and matt’ effect with highlighted areas burnished with an agate stone and there is slight distressing to expose the bole beneath.
