This exquisite Louis XVI-style trumeau mirror dates from the nineteenth century. It is unusual that the painting has been painted directly onto the timber rather than on a canvas. It is a water-based paint, so mustn't be cleaned or scrubbed. The scene shows a mother and child picking pink flowers from a tree.
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.
Heavy wear and rustic condition consistent with age and use.
