Austrian Biedermeier Period Cherrywood and Gold Leaf Mirror
Striking Biedermeier period cherrywood, ebonized mirror with central gold leaf lion and cherub. The high contrast between the luminous colour of the cherry timber and the reflective black ebonized finish ensures that the gilded ornament of the cherub astride a lion with lyre in hand is highly visible. The relative simplicity of the overall design gives the mirror visual power as an object on its own while the figural representation of a Classical figure identifies its neoclassical origin. The original mirror glass has a slight bevel as well as the usual signs of age that give antique mirror glass its appealing appearance.
