|Rare & Beautiful 9" x 7" large Italian giltwood mirror w/ gold leafing and cherub motif. This is one of the largest and most spectacular mirrors we"ve seen in over 25 years of business. The mirror was purchased by the Borgese family in the late 19th C. in Florence, Italy. The cost at that time was $15,000, and it was an antique then. It was used in a beauty shop in Minneapolis until the 1960"s where it was then bought by a serious art collector and incorporated into his collection. In the late 1990"s the mirror was moved to a museum storage area and finally sold to us. The piece is in extraordinary condition and appears to be almost flawless. This could easily be worth $250,000, but we purchased it for an amount that allows us to sell it for $100,000.|
