Antique French Venetian Style Louis Philippe Wall Mirror circa 1880


The elegant shape of this mirror is distinctly Louis Philippe in origin while featuring the beautifully reflective design of an antique Venetian mirror circa 1880. The rectangular base moves up the straight sides to a curved shoulder on the left and right that then arch toward the centre ending in a point. As with most Venetian mirrors the slender exterior frame features an etched floral design on the underside of the mirror glass. It is always a surprise when touching the mirror to discover a smooth surface instead of the etched surface one is expecting. There are actually eleven separate pieces of mirror glass used to create this mirror with the large central mirror plate surrounded by a raised frame of mirrors. The lower corners each have a square mirror plate concealing the join between the horizontal base and the vertical sides. Both sides extend from the base up to the top and their join is concealed by a circular mirror glass. At the peak of the mirror that ends in a point is an oval piece of mirror placed directly in the centre. This antique French mirror circa 1880 uses the Louis Philippe original as inspiration while incorporating original Venetian mirror techniques in a unique blend to create a unique piece.
