Description

This is a totally stunning statement piece from the mid 19th century with that classical georgian look. mahogany fret cut design with a hand carved gilded pediment consisting of a "ho ho" bird (which is the mythical japanese version of the phoenix bird which is said to bring luck, good fortune and longevity) above a fleur de lis design again hand carved. this is flanked on either sides by beautifully carved feather like acanthus leaves. the gilding continues with applied gilded and carved pieces in the form of leaves and flowers applied to the side edges. around the mirror glass is a fine gilded border and a further mahogany reeded outer frame. the fret cut design continues along the base.

The mirror glass has numerous small pin point losses to the silver in the center of the glass and some loss of reflection but all that you would expect to see in a mirror of this age. the fret work is all intact with no visible signs of repair or restoration.
