A superb and imposing full length French mirror, dating from the first half of the 19th century.
Originally from a French hunting lodge.
This superb quality mirror has a wonderful dry scraped finish, revealing layers of old paint & gilding along with a brass studded boarder. The original plate has the perfect amount of foxing whilst still being functional. It has an ornate plaster finial with a pair of dead sparrows, traditionally a symbol of rebirth. In good solid condition with no loss. A unique example and true statement piece.
