A French Napoleon III Mirror
A French Napoleon III (Second Empire) period mirror, the very fine gilt pastille-work frame fitted with the original mirror pane. Of wonderful proportions, and of masculine personality. Area of Paris, circa 1860.
Condition report: in fair, unrestored condition. Complete in all its parts and retaining its original mirror plate, the mirror frame has been re-gilded in the past with gold powder paint. Our workshop will clean this mirror back to its original finish, once in Melbourne.
Dimensions: 100 x 125 cm.
