Antique Over-Mantle Mirror

Circa 1840s

Stunning over-mantle mirror with a fantastic completely original aged / distressed look. The mirror frame is made of gesso plaster beautifully moulded, painted red and decorated with gold leaves and gold detailing. It is French in style and of the period of Louis Philippe. 

It is a very large mirror measuring approximately 55" (1m 40cm) high by 40" (1m) wide. 

The mirror is totally original and retains its original glass which is heavily distressed and compliments the age and authenticity of the piece. The frame is stunning and just couldn't be replicated. The red and gold has faded into a beautiful washed chalky look and the plaster has cracked in places and there are small pieces missing around the edges. None of this detracts from its overall display and in fact adds to it if it is a distressed mirror you are looking for.
