A large French Louis XVI period painted trumeau mirror from the late 18th century, with carved giltwood musical trophy. Born in France during the reign of King Louis XVI, this exquisite trumeau mirror features in its upper section a carved ribbon-tied musical trophy symbolizing the Liberal Arts, surrounded by olive branches. The side posts are accented with pilaster-reminiscent motifs while the lower section presents gilded waterleaf and beaded motifs framing the central mirror plate. This giltwood décor stands out beautifully on the soft-colored background, making this late 18th century French Louis XVI period painted and gilded trumeau mirror a great focal point to enliven any wall.
