Antique Russian Empire Mahogany Brass Mirror circa 1830 (39" w x 73.5" h)
This spectacular antique Russian Empire mahogany mirror embellished with gilt brass mounts circa 1830 showcases the architectural splendor of the Empire period seen while Napoleon I was Emperor of France. The stylized pediment features a flat top enclosing a triangular inset with a gilded brass medallion. The use of varying thicknesses of mahogany timber to give a sense of depth and then emphasizing this with gilded brass is a technique seen only in the finest of Empire furnishings. The rectangular frame encloses the original beveled mirror with its customary spots and speckles that gives antique mirror glass its ineffable appeal. Please enlarge the photographs as they are an important illustration of the history of this rare mirror. Pay particular attention to the construction details seen on the reverse of the mirror including the closeup of the original dowels used to hang suspend the mirror as well as the triangular section of timber used to support the front mahogany section with its sun and ray medallion. This Russian Empire mirror was originally created for a grand public room in one of the important houses in St. Petersburg where its magnificent impression was enjoyed by both guests and family.
