Circa 1870, Victorian giltwood overmantel mirror of generous proportions. The stylish open fretwork pediment is surmounted by a cherub, held in place by Rococo carved gesso which tapers down the top of the mirror. There are 2 types of gilding on the gesso. The bezel of the mirror has 5 sections all with different types of foliate carving and beading. At the bottom there is a flat section for sitting on the mantelpiece and the mirror is held in place on the left, right and the centre by various foliate carving. The dimensions of the mirror make it very desirable. The condition is clean, as is the mirror. There is a slight foxing on the right hand side.
