Large antique Restoration period rectangular decorated giltwood chimney mirror 49¼" x 38½"

SKU: 17745

A beautiful, large French Restoration Period giltwood mirror with pretty gilded plaster decorations gracing the frame from the early nineteenth-century. Note some losses as seen in photos consistent with age and use. This lovely painted gold mirror is rectangular in shape and will rest nicely above a fireplace mantle. The mirror contains its original mercury glass.

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. 

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. 

Condition and wear consistent with age and use.
Approx. overall 49¼" high x 38½" wide x 2¾" deep
