French fine 18th mirror, Paris Louis XIV period

Very beautiful mirror in finely carved, engraved and gilded wood.
The frame made up of baguettes à la Bérain separated by two glazing beads adorned with flowers and enriched with gilt wood spandrels decorated with sunflowers and openwork interlacing on an ice background.
On the sides, two windings of acanthus ending in wolf heads support the imposing original pediment.
The latter finely openwork with foliage in "pigtails" surmounted by shells and a large woman's mask.

Very good state of conservation; original gilding, original mercury backs and glasses.


Parisian work from the late Louis XIV period around 1710.

Dimensions:

Height: 180 cm; Width: 109 cm

Provenance: Chateau du Languedoc



Our opinion :

Mirrors became more popular under the reign of Louis XV, but they were still extremely rare under the regency and under the reign of the Sun King.
The gilded wood border made up most of the price of ice cream in the mid-18th century, while it was the opposite at the turn of the century with glasses that cost a fortune.
The mirror that we present in perfect original condition with its parquet flooring never dismantled and a high quality border is a very fine example of this production desired by King Louis XIV.
It has double glazing beads, which is extremely rare.
