Antique French Mirror with Gesso Moulding
Antique mirror, French we think, with hand cut bevelled glass and a gold coloured, probably gilt, gesso moulded wooden frame. Not entirely sure of its age but it's surely no later than the 1920's and very possibly around 1900. Condition is rather worn: in general this is almost a boon; the overall effect is charming, but some of the finish is rather delicate. Most of what wanted to flake off, has flaked off, revealing the base wood below. The back is a bit messy; wooden planks with gaps and an old blanket in there to stop rattling I guess. It's fab really. The structure seems pretty good; it's not wobbly or falling apart. Very heavy. In all it's a bit lovely.
