Gilt Louis Philippe Mirror with a blade pattern on the frame and beading around the mirror.
This is a beautiful gold leaf gilt Louis Philippe mirror that was made in France at the end of the 19th century.
The parts with the polished gold leaf have a red bole undercoat that shines through the edges of gold and adds warmth to the gold color.
The mirror has built up a nice patina over the many years. The quality of the gold is excellent and wears the marks of time beautifully.
The mirror glass appears to be original to the piece. The glass shows a few small spots and scratches that contribute to the antique appearance of the piece.
