Art Nouveau Egyptian Revival Mirror*
French late Art Nouveau oak framed wall mirror with a shaped outline combining an applied repoussé decorated brass floral detail with Egyptian revival motifs.
On each side of the mirror plate, the frame is detailed with stylised flowers and buds, and a pair of creamy coloured stone cabochons with touches of blue. The semi-circular panel beneath the mirror is decorated in the same theme and shows a similar centrally placed cabochon.
At the top of the frame is a large winged scarab, its wings showing lovely repoussé detail and its body carved from an oval matching stone.
Made circa 1920 or perhaps a little earlier, all of the brass decoration is complete and in good condition, apart from a tiny break in the area of the swirling stems around the top left cabochon.
It looks as though the bottom strut of the frame has been repaired at some stage, but evidence of this is partially hidden by the decorative brass panel.
Almost certainly made by the Parisian workshop of L’Artisan Pratique and measuring approximately 44 X 44 cm overall.
