Item # LFALO1564
Beautiful French Louis XVI style hand-carved neoclassical giltwood mirror having original glass. The intricately carved crest is formed by the twin symbols of Louis XVI - a quiver of arrows crossed with a flambeau - joined by a laurel wreath and bow tied ribbon. The flaming torch is an ancient symbol of life, truth and the regenerative power of fire while the quiver of arrows signifies the ability to use force in the pursuit of justice. By using these symbols from the past, Louis XVI was making a conscious choice to ally himself with their powerful meanings. Top corners have rosettes topped by urns. Mirrors of this scale and grandeur were always used in the public areas of a home where their beauty could be admired by both the residents and their guests.
