A French Louis XVI period painted and gilded wooden mirror from the late 18th century, with carved crest. Created in France during the reign of King Louis XVI, this giltwood mirror captures our attention with its carved crest featuring a gardening hat and two pine cone-accented staffs resting on delicate laurel leaves. The frame is topped with carved foliage motifs with tassels standing out on a painted ground, and is decorated with petite beads surrounding a mirror plate with nice traces of aging. With its nice proportions and delicate décor, this Louis XVI period gilt, painted and carved wooden mirror circa 1780 will bring a touch of French refinement to any home, particularly hung above a commode, credenza or console table.
