Antique French 19th Century Period Napoleon III Carved Giltwood Mirror
Large 19th century French Napoleon III period hand-carved neoclassical giltwood mirror having original glass. The intricately carved crest is formed by an eagle atop a quiver of arrows crossed with a flambeau joined by cascading laurel leaves and floral garland. 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. Mirrors like this were always used in the public areas of a home where their beauty could be admired by both the residents and their guests. Original patina with red oxidation showing through adds to the charm and authenticity.
