Stunning ANTIQUE OVAL GOLD GILT VENETIAN STYLE circa 1880s MIRROR with ribbon, fern and berries pediment. Mirror is encircled with fern leaves spaced with rosebuds. Bottom medallion is floral (probably a large rosebud) with fern leaves. One of the nicest ornate gold gilt mirrors I have come across in a very long time. Please see pictures in photo gallery for detailed views of condition, style, design and color.

Measurements:  The mirror frame measures approximately 38” inches (x) 30 ½” inches.


Condition:   preowned. Used.  Very good to excellent in my opinion. No chips, cracks, repairs, nicks, or hairlines on the gold gilt frame that I can find with repeated close inspection.  The gold gilt finish is original, with original untouched patina.  Mirror is very good – no noticeable scratches or tarnish to the silvering of the glass. Probably has some dust in the crevices.  Heavy wire on back side through metal eye-loops to hold frame onto wall.  Don’t see too many frame like this anymore – and very rare to find them in this nice of original condition.   Overall at least very good condition in my opinion. Please see photos for detailed views.
