18th Century Baroque Carved and Gilded Looking Glass, circa 1740

Price: $1,450.00

18th Century Baroque Carved and Gilded Looking Glass, almost certainly English, circa 1740, having a carved crown resting atop a tassled cushion, with Tudor rose, above a rectangular frame with applied scrolls, acanthus leaves and cockbeading around the interior edge. The gilt finish is worn. The mirrored glass is very old but certainly not 18th Century; the glass likely dates to around 1900 or so, and shows its age via many surface scratches and a few spots where back tarnish is beginning. The frame has some cracks and minor loss to the gesso, and a point or two where the gesso was restored, but surprisingly very little. All in all a great little stylish mirror.

The backboard is firmly attached and has not been removed for further inspection.

Measures: 19-1/4 in H x 12-1/2 in W x 1-1/2 in Deep
