B1027 - Fabulous Antique French Repousse / Toleware Rococo Style Cushion Mirror 19th C
This is a fabulous antique French repoussé cushion mirror dating from the 1800's. It would certainly add a château chic finishing touch to a room.
It is in the Rococo style and is very decorative. The crest has a mirrored background with repoussé acanthus leaf scrolls and hanging fruit.
The repoussé work of the frame has been perfectly executed to give us a very decorative piece. The corners are in the shape of a shell and join the inner frame to the outer frame. The gilding on the repoussé has mellowed over the years to a gorgeous old gold hue.
The central mirror plate is bevelled. This and the mirror plates to the sides of the 'cushion' have some very minor foxing which adds character to this lovely old mirror.
The mirror is in excellent antique condition. There is one very small dent to the centre of the crest (please see photos).
The mirror measures :- 57 cm (22.5 inches) high x 31.5 cm (12.5 inches) wide.
A beautiful mirror for a special niche and another superb brocante find from La Belle Étoffe!
