More About this Item


Description: Wood, carved, gilt, mirror glass, gilt wire Italy, late 17th century Rectangular mirror frame with revolving tendrils and leafage, partial flanked by flower garlands The crest with a scrollwork cartouche, putti at both sides, above Zeus on a eagle throwing lightnings Original mirror glass Dimensions: 184.5 x 109.5 cm In the 16th and 17th century mirrors were compounded of particularly glass plates, which were expensive and rare. Murano was the center of flat and colorless glass production. In the end of the 17th century Louis XIV established his own glass foundry in Tourlaville, where a glaze technique was developed to produce larger glass plates. Whole European glass founders followed by this technique. Hall of mirrors established at the courts; the most famous one is presumably this in Versailles. The framing of the mirror was often elaborated and precious decorated with Putten, masks, scrollworks and floral motifs or even artful carved with a top. To strengthen light reflex the mirror was gilt or silvered. Larger mirrors were mounted above the chimney or at the wall between windows. The mirror developed to a highlight in an interior and delighted all people by its fascination to reflect itself. Condition: The mirror with its crest and side elements is in age-related condition. The gilding is rubbed resp. flaked off in places and shows some bumping marks and losses. The frame is partially wormy (inactive) and shows some tension cracks. Some restorations in the area of the crest. The reverse of the Zeus figure with loose elements and losses. (ala) Shipping costs excl. statutory VAT and plus 2,5% (+VAT) shipping insurance.
