GRAND ANTIQUE FRENCH
LOUIS PHILIPPE PERIOD MIRROR
Item # LFALO1407
Grand French Louis Philippe period mirror adorned with intricate floral and foliate etchings, having its original mercury glass. The tall rectangular shape of the frame has straight corners at the base, while the upper shoulders have the typical rounded corners seen on all Louis Philippe style frames. The inner border features "les perles" (beading that resembles a strand of pearls) next to the antique mirror glass. Red oxidation showing through the beautiful water gilded patina that is original to the piece.
Artisans used this beading technique as a decorative element on the grandest pieces, as pearls symbolized power and luxury since only the most wealthy aristocrats could afford them.
The unique appearance of antique mirror glass always adds charm and character that is impossible to achieve with new mirror glass. Louis Philippe mirrors are ideal for use in today's interiors.
