This delightful antique French mirror dates from the nineteenth century. Its square frame is made from gilded plaster stucco and contains its original mercury mirror. The frame features a wide moldings decorated with a continuous border of diagonal raised stripes. Each corner features a delightful motif of a tied bouquet of flowers. This mirror can be hung both vertically and horizontally and suits well in both classic and modern interiors.
Please note some small fissures in the plaster and the lower left corner of the frame as seen in photos.
Note: This mirror contains its original mercury glass which sparkles beautifully in the light. The technique of making mercury glass mirrors was retired in the early 1900s. The mercury is fixed behind the glass in a solidified, non-harmful state.
Note: Mirrors have been photographed facing fabric, a technique that reveals any age spots in the glass. In some cases, this may create the appearance of an empty frame, but each mirror is complete except where explicitly stated.
