Listing Information
Rare Piedmontese mirror measuring 180 cm 100 cm in gilded wood and carved with original mercury glass.

All the grace and lightness of "rocaille" are revealed in this beautiful mirror made of carved wood, painted and gilded typical of the mid-eighteenth century; the thin outline, just wavy and profiled in gold culminates in a richly decorated cimasa from which descend the sides of the flowering branches. the figurative and decorative repertoire grafted the Piedmontese tradition still of seventeenth-century taste of the ampullous intaglio, with a marked naturalistic intonation, on the fanciful suggestions of French ornatists like Jean Berain. The striking cimasa still seems to be of baroque taste, created with reckless fretworks and full-bodied intertwining acanthus leaves.

An irreplaceable detail of today's eighteenth-century furnishing, the mirror can be placed above a console or above a fireplace, or occupy the entire wall or part of it, if large.
