Pair of 18th Century French Gilded Mirrors
Pair of 18th century French gilded, carved wood and gesso mirrors having the original mercury glass, 1760s. The rectangular frame is adorned with beautifully carved rosettes and floral accents. Similar to oeil de sorcière or witch's mirrors, which have a convex glass, mirrors with round glass like this were often seen in many famous paintings and considered status symbols during the Renaissance period. Original patina with red showing through adds to the charm and authenticity, as does the foxing on the glass.
