Antique French Régence Style Pareclose Mirror France circa 1885 (38"w x 49 1/2"h)
A lavish antique French Régence style gold leaf pareclose mirror from France circa 1885. The superb decorative scrolls and flourishes that comprise this antique mirror are simply beautiful. Please notice how the rectangular shape of the mirror is enhanced with an exuberant Régence style cartouche embellished with a multitude of open blossoms that descend from the central framed open section. The central mirror is surrounded on all four sides with slender mirrors and all five original mirrors are beveled. This construction, known as "à paraclose" after the architectural term, was used to increase the size and reflection of a mirror before the technology existed to make large sheets of mirror glass. The most famous example is the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles where the mirrors create a dazzling effect.
