Antique French Louis Philippe gold leaf mirror frame enclosing the original mirror glass from France circa 1885. This handsome mirror has an exceptionally pleasing symmetrical frame with the addition of a Louis XV style rococo cartouche at the top.
The facing flourishes and scrolls that comprise the cartouche are in beautiful contrast to the regularity of the rest of the frame. The designer of the frame also chose to put a large scroll at each of the four corners atop the pattern of water drops to balance the manner in which the cartouche moves forward away from the top.
Please enlarge the additional photographs to see the details of the mirror as they flow together in a very attractive way. The original mirror glass has all of the usual speckles and spots expected in antique glass that add immeasurably to the overall beauty. Measures 37" wide x 3" deep x 57 high.
