A large 19th century oval gilt mirror

A truly exceptional mirror- beautiful, large proportions and the most glorious, organic gesso work over the wood frame (birds, vines, berries and leaves), which has been classically water gilded.

Reassuringly heavy.


All approximate

96cm tall

80cm wide

5cm depth

NB the orientation could be changed to landscape- the current mount on the reverse is for portrait hanging.
