Large Louis XV Crested Mirror
A Louis XV mirror with an egg and dart moulded frame, a gendarme top and crest.
The beautiful egg and dart moulding is cut with the sharpest chisel. There is an artist, a sculptor called Gray Nicol, who can carve egg and dart as crisply as this mirror's frame demonstrates. He is a rare talent.
The gendarme top gives this mirror another dimension. The laurel leaves on the mirror's crest are perfect and radiate from a Rococo crest.
The mirror's original mercury-plate glass is faultless. A well constructed frame has safeguarded the glass.
