19th Century, Italian Carved Giltwood Trumeau Mirror
The refined mirror, made in Piedmont, Italy, towards the beginning of the nineteenth century, has an elegant frame in finely carved and gilded wood. In the upper part is inserted a painted canvas, oval in shape, with a carved and gilded wooden frame from which depart, crossed between them, two very refined branches made of gilded wood. The portion of the upper frame of the entire mirror has a carved decoration with a central element with a composition of flowers and plant ornaments from which develop ribbons and two symmetrical festoons composed of lanceolate leaves and flowers. The frame ends with low relief decoration with ovules.
The canvas, work of Piedmontese artist, is painted in oil and depicts a young boy belonging to a noble family, richly dressed according to the fashion of the late eighteenth century
In good state of preservation, there are some small breaks and shortcomings. There is also a lack of a part of the ribbon that adorns the upper part of the frame.
This mirror, of beautiful size and excellent proportions, can be exposed both over a chest of drawers as a mirror trumeau over a console or a fireplace. Due to its height, it is also suitable to be placed on the wall resting on the ground or slightly suspended
