This elegant French Louis XVI Giltwood Mirror (wide bevel) has exceptional carving with an exuberant high relief trophy flanked with an arched and pierced floral motif. Large protruding feathers above a plumed helmet all flanked by flags and crossed quivers. The rectangular frame is adorned with lively scroll work on diamond patterned background finished in a bright and matte gilding. This is a very early piece and you can see on the reverse the way the tenons join the frame in the corners. This frame has been professionally regilded years ago and is in spectacular condition. The mirror has a very wide bevel that can be seen in the first photo.
