This fabulous easel backed mirror is carved, gessoed,and gilded with acanthus leaves, ruffled or beaded inner edges, resting on little scrolled feet. So delightful as well as useful item for your boudoir! Of course you could even hang it on your wall! It has just the right patina and wear! There seems to be some minor repairs, which are age appropriate. The last photo shows the easel back connected by a little brass chain. The mirror seems to be hand cut, and the under paint is ochre boule...
I found this unique antique frame in a Brussels antique fair and knew it would be stunning hanging in a collection of frames or with a mirror. The finish is most likely a replica of the original. It has repaired crack and some loss of plaster in the inside beading, shown at the top left in the photo. I've included a photo of the back which also shows the original hanger.Measures 23 1/2" X 20".
An image of The Holy Mother is framed under convex glass in a round gilt frame and mounted on alabaster over metal. The little glass font is held on with tiny little gilt rosettes. So charming and quite special! 5" X 2 3/4"
