Our opinion :
The rather narrow format of our mirror intended it to be placed between two windows.
With its rococo decoration, it is characteristic of the beautiful Genoese Baroque, which although mellowed by more mastered forms, still remained in force in the middle of the 18th century.
The delicacy of its sculpture, the rarity of its dimensions, the purity of its line and its optimal state of conservation, with the gilding, the glasses and the parquetry which are original, make it a piece of great qualities, particularly rare on the market.
