This stunning mid-19th Century Florentine diamond-shaped mirror is entirely hand-carved from a single piece of wood gilded with the ancient gold leaves technique.
Its intriguing high relief carving features scrolls, shells and flowers’ garlands throughout.
The central mercury mirror has an octagonal shape and is flanked by eight other rectangular mirrors on each side.
The two gilded wooden frames, embellished with the typical Florentine oval patterns, give the mirror a pleasant and unusual three-dimensional effect.
Both the gilding and the mirrors are in incredible perfect condition.
