Fabulous, shabby and distressed French Louis Philippe aged white mirror. Layers and layers of old paint and weathering have created a wonderful effect, with striking hints of gold leaf, as well as green and black.
A heavily foxed and worn mercury glass plate completes the effect. (All measurements are approximate and provided as a guide). Mirror has been kept in as-found, distressed condition, with losses allover to paint and frame and heavy foxing and wear to mirror plate. This is what makes it wonderful.Some woodworm holes are evident on the back - the mirror has been given a thorough woodworm treatment as a precaution. Later ply backing boards have been added. Please refer to all photos for details.
