Magnificent, elegant and very unusual 19th century French gilt Louis XV crested mirror.

It dates from around 1880.

It has a huge ornate real gilt (gold leaf) on gesso shell and floral crest and stunning gilt frame.

It also has its original beautiful heavy mercury glass which gives a reflection like no other and is so hard to find these days, with lots of lovely foxing.  

It has its original pine backboards.

It would look superb on a mantelpiece, as a leaner mirror in a lounge or bedroom or hanging on a large wall.

It is in super condition.
