A heavily distressed gilt mercury wall mirror

An extremely characterful old mirror. The plate is very distressed with areas of mercury missing and other areas where a red/orange hue shows through. Plenty of glorious wear to the gilded gesso and wood frame too. The mirror has a wonderfully decorative look.

No wall fittings are included so you can choose to use this portrait or landscape.



Length 48cm

Width 40cm

Plate 41cm x 33cm


Condition: Where there are specific points to note we will detail these as far as possible but please be aware that all our items have wear commensurate with age and are as seen in the photographs.
