Mirror with the effigy of Diana the Huntress, Paris, Régence period

Rare woodwork mirror in finely carved lacquered and gilded oak wood.
The cream lacquered and heavily molded rods constitute a rectangular frame which is slightly curved at the top.
The whole is decorated with a very beautiful decoration in carved and gilded wood including four spandrels with acanthus leaves.
The two bottom ones in the form of spirals are topped by foliage of flowers.
The low crossbar decorated with a large acanthus fanned out; the top crossbar decorated with a mask of Diana the Huntress in an environment of openwork rockeries.

Oak wood, beautiful state of conservation, old mercury glass.

Parisian work from the Regency period, attributable to the society of sculptors of the king's buildings.

Dimensions:

Width: 106cm; Height: 87 cm

Our opinion :

The beautiful feminine face of Diane, who is wearing her bow, directs us towards the hunting decor of the hunting room of an important chateau on the Ile de France.
The finesse of the sculpture and the great originality of the decoration with "fan" and "spiral" acanthus take us back to the sculpture workshop of the king's buildings where the best wood carvers of the Regency period worked.
Under the orders of Robert de Cotte, sculptors like Jules Degoulons, Matthieu Legoupil and Pierre Taupin will be responsible for creating the woodwork and frames for the royal estates but also for a few wealthy clients who have the means to pay for the elite craftsmen of the king.
For two decades they transposed the most beautiful designs of fashionable ornamentalists like Nicolas Pineau or Juste Aurèle Meissonnier, onto very tight-grained oak wood.
The work of this company constitutes the quintessence of the art of woodwork in France.
