Large Victorian mirror
A large and very attractive mid Victorian over mantle mirror C.1860.
It’s a good quality mirror, very heavy, made from pine with a gesso finish, original mercury plate glass and panelled backing. It is both solid and stable with various areas of loss, multiple layers of gilding and old paint giving it a distressed appearance. Not one for the purists but a highly decorative and unique mirror, faded grandeur at its best. It works well both floor standing or as an over mantle.
