Monumental Pair of Period Louis XV Carved Giltwood Mirrors
H 85 in x W 50.5 in
Pair of period Louis XV mirrors, each 7 feet in height, of carved giltwood, having a modified arched pediment in molded frame, convex ball motif on mirrored relief border, framed in bead-and-bar decoration, with scrolling cartouches at mid-points and each corners, surmounted by an elaborate pierced pediment centered by festooned palmette, flanked by acanthus, C-scrolls, and foliate carving.
CONDITION: Excellent antique condition. Minor wear and loses consistent with age and use. Natural wear to mirror silvering. Form of one relief panel is just shy of the frame (see image #8).
