Unusual Louis-Philippe Giltwood Mirror

mid-19th century, the pierced crest decorated with tropical leaves and fruit, the surround molded with cross-hatching and like decor, the antique mirror plate lined with beading.
h. 59", w. 39"


In "as found" condition, with scattered losses to gilt revealing the underlying gesso, scattered small losses, rubbing, wear and significant overpainting. There are a number of losses to carved elements, most notably on the left end of the crest, losses to a branch and leaf tip and one larger leaf is loose. On the lower right corner, there is the loss of a cluster of hanging pods, and a loss of a couple on the left side of the frame, about 2/3 the way down from the top. The mirror plate appears to be old/antique. It is generally crisp and clear with scattered small spots of imperfections in the silvering.
