French Art Nouveau Mirror*

Item Description

Old French frame with a shaped outline that may or may not have originally housed a mirror but it certainly does now.

Covered with a repoussé decoration in brass of stylised birds, leaves and fruits and embellished in the centre of the bottom rail with an opalescent glass cabochon.

The brass has a two-tone appearance with the hammered background being darker in colour, accentuating the sheen on the the main highlights.

France is obviously renowned as the birthplace of Art Nouveau rather than for Arts & Crafts but this delightful little mirror fits well into both categories, and dates from the early 1900’s.

Showing a couple of darker areas to the finish, as can be seen in our photos, which are simply due to age. Ready to hang, with a maximum overall width of 62.5 cm  and a height of around 37 cm.  The mirror plate is approximately 36 cm wide.
