Antique French Shell Mirror France circa 1890 (11"W x 16"H)

The lovely Baroque shape of this antique French shell encrusted iron frame surrounds the original beveled mirror glass from France circa 1890. Please be sure to enlarge the photographs to see the deliberate choices made by the artisan to select shells which fit and enhanced the shape of the frame. Because the iron frame is pierced and open especial care was needed to only use shells of an appropriate scale and complementary shape. The beautiful curvaceous effect of the shells affixed to the iron frame is exceedingly enchanting and the mirror perfectly reflects a face peering into its reflective surface. The mirror is perfect for a vanity table where its delicate appearance will complement other articles. We have shown the mirror with an accompanying shell basket (please use stock number SPA40 to see its individual listing) as well as a stunning shell encrusted box (sold) to show the discriminating artistry of French decorative shell work.
