Rocaille Mirror, Louis XV Period

Dimensions : H. 122 x L. 80 cm

Beautiful mirror richly carved and gilded with the leaf. First of all, one must observe the balance and the correctness of the proportions. Indeed, many mirrors that are too square or too elongated are unaesthetic; this often reveals a later modification in the dimensions.
This is a work done in Paris as evidenced by the choice of lime wood and the quality of the abundant, deep and openwork sculpture. The decorative repertoire is Rocaille, a style born in France in the middle of the Louis XV period: symmetry is abandoned, the curves are accentuated, and the openings are numerous.
This mirror is in very good condition. The gilding has been restored but it remains more than 80% original. The missing and replaced parts of the carved wood are minimal. The mercury glass is original, slightly pitted. At the back, the fir wood floor is original, attesting the absence of modification.
