French Art Nouveau Mirror*
Delightful French Art Nouveau mirror, its wood frame decorated with applied repoussé work in brass and colourful green roundels.
The frame has a shaped outline, widening a little towards the top, housing an approximately rectangular mirror plate which has a slightly arched top edge.
Flowers, stems and leaves and two rather splendidly fat doves with peacock eye glass detail in their tail feathers adorn the front of the frame, together with the three green glass cabochons which show a crazed finish in relief. Interspersed between the brasswork is a geometric design of decorative studding, applied using handmade pins and nails.
The backplate is original and has an easel so that the mirror can be used free standing if preferred but a cord has also been attached enabling it to be wall hung.
We’ve had the mirror plate replaced as the original was damaged beyond repair when we acquired it.
Circa 1890 – 1900 and 65 cm wide at the widest point with an overall height of around 47 cm. The glass is approximately 46 X 34 cm.
