Venetian mirror mid-18th century

Venetian mirror Louis XV of the mid-eighteenth century, with a frame measuring 155 x 90 cm and a mirror measuring 66 x 50 cm, with original mercury glass, in gilded wood and carved with sinuous profiling.

This type of mirrors, slightly hollow, with meticulously described floral motifs, conceived and built for smaller dimensions than the monumental parchment mirrors sculpted in the round, perfectly explains the evolution of the Venetian decorative repertoire that still takes its cue at least initially from the late seventeenth-century lagoon tradition of ampullose carving with a marked naturalistic intonation, on imaginative suggestions.
They still seem to be shaped by the Baroque inspiration, in fact the spectacular comb-like gables set by dared tunnels and the thick intertwining of acanthus leaves that fall along the uprights in symmetrical volutes with a free profile.

In this splendid mirror with a cymatium richly carved with floral motifs we can see the harmony and elegance of the Venetian style described harmoniously by a very rare and elegant balance of shapes; of sober structural conception the frame has a molded shape rippled by very low-relief carved flowered shoots on the bottom shelled by meticulous markings of the band.
