19th century French mirror with watergilt undulating frame. Where this mirror has been cleaned for over 100 years, the gold leaf has thinned (particularly along the inside edge) revealing the terracotta bole and cream gesso beneath. The original glass is in good condition with just a very little light age and this attractive mirror can be hung portrait (as photographed) or landscape.
