This is a monumental pair of 2.5 metre high antique Louis XV style French giltwood pier mirrors, with fabulous hand carved floral decoration, circa 1900.
The arched mirror plates are elegantly framed by hand carved 'C' - scroll corners with beaded decoration and they are surmounted with elaborate scrolled acanthus cresting. The centre of the cresting features amber Vernis Martin framed roundels depicting putti, and they have pierced scallop shell plaques at the bottom.
The mirror plates have decorative bevelled edges that follow the contours of the frames.
Add a touch of sophistication to a your home with these fantastic quality French mirrors.
In excellent condition having been cleaned and polished in our workshops.
As antique items, the mirror plates show signs of use commensurate with age, these minor condition issues are mentioned for accuracy and, as seen in the accompanying photographs, the mirrors display beautifully.
