About Parclose mirrors:

A parclose mirror is a type of mirror that is characteristic of the Baroque period, and it incorporates additional smaller mirrored sections within the outer frame. These secondary mirrors are usually separated from the main mirror by sections of the frame, creating a sort of windowpane effect. The term "parclose" refers to the enclosing sections of the frame that separate the mirrors.

Parclose mirrors often feature elaborate and ornate designs, with carved decorations that can include motifs from nature, like flowers and vines, or other intricate patterns and figures. These mirrors were popular during the Louis XV period in France and are reflective of the opulent and decorative style of that time, making them prized antiques today for their craftsmanship and historical value.
