Antique French Louis XVI Style Mirror, Rococo Cartouche, France circa 1890 (33"w x 52"h)

This antique French Louis XVI style mirror from France circa 1890 is a wonderful mixture of the geometric appeal of the Louis XVI style in its overall appearance embellished with a delightfully lavish central cartouche at the top done in the style used when Louis XV was King of France. The bold corners of the frame are enhanced at the upper left and right with additional emphasis while all of the flat surfaces of the frame are full of embossed patterns that while symmetrical are actually rather lavish in their overall effect. The cartouche at the top center is a marvelous evocaation of the Louis XV style with its beautifully curved elements set asymmetrically across almost the entire width of the frame. The sensuous movement of the open work flourishes echoes the abundance seen in nature and this idea indeed was central to the rococo. Adding to this wonderful combination of two periods is the original beveled mirror that exhibits the usual speckles indicative of antique mirror that adds a desirable effect and impresion when installed in a current interior.
