An exceptional French 19th century Louis XV st. giltwood mirror. The original beveled mirror plate is framed within an elegant curved border with two scrolled foliate bottom feet centering a finely carved reserve. Running along the side throughout is a tied reeded design adorned with beautiful and detailed foliate movements in a satin and burnished finish. The stunning pierced top crown is centered by a foliate reserve and surrounded by scrolled movements with a fluted pattern. The bevel of the original mirror plate follows the beautifully shaped contour of the frame.
