A late 18th or early 19th century Italian gilt wood mirror, with later glass mirror. This comes to us from a good collection assembled after World War II. This elaborate mirror was originally built into a wall as part of the decoration of a very opulent room. We think that this mirror is from Italy as it measures out so well in inches. We like the quality of carving and the scale of this piece. The gilding has been retouched at least twice. Ex-Fine Arts Museum deaccesssion.
