This églomisé mirror sits in a gilt frame with carved acanthus and olive leaf motif throughout. The large hand carved frame gives the piece a refined masculinity. Églomisé is a painstaking and time consuming old world craftsman technique of applying individual layers of gilding. This particular mirror shows the squares of silver leaf used to back the glass to create a smoky, champagne colored finish with slight foxing. This mirror was sourced in Belgium and has been a favorite since its arrival. Good condition with minor losses. Wear consistent with age.
