French Giltwood Mirror in the Louis XV Taste

ca. 1900, of oval form, with a pierced crest decorated with musical instruments, the outer surround molded with ribbon-wrapped beading, with panels of mirror plate forming an inner surround, with overlapping leaf carving.
h. 48", w. 37"


In overall very good condition. The gilt surface exhibits rubbing; the piece is in largely old/original gilt with some minor inpainting and repairs. The mirror plate is generally sharp and clear with a number of scattered small imperfections and spots. There is a loss to the gilt and gesso, about 1-1/2" x 1/2", along a lower edge of the mirror plate. There is a separation/break in the carving just to the side of the bottommost element.
