Stunning antique French overmantel mirror.

It dates from around 1860.

It has its absolutely beautiful real gilt (gold leaf) on gesso frame in a floral design with a huge ornate gesso shell and floral crest. 

It has its gorgeous original mercury glass. Mercury glass is so hard to find these days and gives a sparkle and reflection like no other. 

It would make a beautiful overmantel above a wide, marble fireplace or would look wonderful in a hall above a large console table.
