Antique French Louis XV Period Carved and Gilded Mirror circa 1760 (28"w x 47"h)

An antique French Louis XV period mirror with a carved and gilded wood frame from France circa 1760. Please note the lavish exuberance of the carved details of this frame. Scrolls and flourishes abound and reinforce the dramatic shape of the mirror. A fascinating aspect of this piece is the Louis XV rococo design defined by its asymmetry of decorative elements. The robust and sculptural quality of the frame is quite exhilarating and invites close inspection of the different motifs used to create its shape. The evident quality of this frame and mirror indicates that it was made for a well to do household with owners who appreciated and understood the level of artistic work exhibited here. The ability of this piece to catch and reflect the available light within a room is substantial and will create a focal point wherever it is placed. A truly lovely example of French excellence in craftsmanship.
