A magnificent and exquisitely carved giltwood mirror
A magnificent and exquisitely carved giltwood mirror crested by an acanthus spray centered between acanthus-tipped c-scrolls, the inner frame formed by carved c-scrolls and lily of the valley, the outer frame consisting of continuously flowing c-scrolls and floral swags. The frame has been largely dry-stripped. Some areas re-gilded due to loss of original gilding. Some repairs to carved leaf tips, with a later 19th century mercury plate.
