Antique French Louis Philippe Gold Leaf Mirror circa 1890 (32" wide x 53" high)

A classic antique French Louis Philippe gold leaf mirror circa 1890 with the original mirror glass. Please notice how the passage of time has manifested itself in the spots and speckles seen in the old mirror - imposssible to reproduce in new mirror even though many makers attempt to artificially age mirror glass. The handsome frame has a bold profile embellished with beading known as "les perles" bordering the mirror. Notice the beautiful layering of the gold leaf and the subtle difference in coloration where the red undercoat (the "rouge") has been revealed. Please be sure to enlarge the photographs to see the details that give this antique French mirror its modern appeal.
