Antique 19th Century French Silver Leaf Gilt Oval Mirror with Crest

About

This beautiful oval mirror is partially silver leaf gilt. It has remnants of gold paint and it shows the bone color of the gesso. It features a top cartouche with a central scallop flanked by C-scrolls, flowers, and leafs. This mirror was originally a “gold” mirror. It’s golden appearance was made by the use of gold paint (gold dust mixed with clear varnish) and silver leaf gilding with a yellow patina over it. The use of yellow patine made the silver look gold. The frame has been cleaned with a paint remover to show the silver color. The mirror plate and back cladding are original to the mirror. The mirror plate has minor wear, some spots, and many small speckles. The mirror plate fits the aged look of the mirror very well.
