This very large antique over mantle mirror is quite special as large and distressed mirrors of this type are difficult to source.
The size is large and measures 124 cm wide and 144cm high.
The mirror glass is very aged with foxing speckles and cloudy patches. The whole of the mirror glass has a faint glittery effect to it which is beautiful.
The frame which was once an ornate gilt gesso is now back to the bare wood. There are signs of gilt in places. The patina really is fantastic. Where the ornate sections once were – for example top centre, there is no just the wire frame.
The frame is fairly sturdy. The back of the mirror is solid wood.
The bottom edge of the frame is missing so the mirror needs to be placed carefully. The mirror would benefit from a new piece of frame adding to the bottom to protect the mirror glass. However, this hasn’t been added to avoid what some may view as damaging the original and untouched appeal of the item. If you wish for this to be added, please enquire as this can be done for a reasonable fee.
