Antique French Louis XVI Style Pareclose Mirror France circa 1880 (40"w x 49 1/2"h)
Antique French gold leaf "pareclose" mirror from France circa 1880. The gorgeous gold leaf frame that encloses the five separate pieces of the original mirror glass in this antique French mirror is simply spectacular. Be sure to enlarge and zoom on the photographs (especially the cartouche at the top) to see the exceptional decorative detail that makes this mirror so enchanting. The use of the different mirrors was originally used to increase the amount of reflective ability before the technology existed to create one enormous piece of mirror. In France the term "pareclose" is used to define this particular type of mirror. Please look at the central cartouche at the top of the mirror centred on an architectural framework defined by a trellis background enclosing a grand scale fleur-de-lys. The sculptural quality of the design elements complements the scale of the mirror and glistens with the seductive power of gleaming gold leaf. The large central mirror is beveled and is enclosed by a slender gold leaf frame set with half spheres that resembles a strand of pearls. Set within the larger outer frame are the four separate rectangular mirrors each placed at an angle to the center. By being set on the angle these mirrors actually reflect a greater portion of the room and project a visual sense of grandeur and sweep.
