Stunning antique French gilt mirror from the early 1800s.

It has its original real gilt (gold leaf) on gesso frame in excellent condition with a beautiful large floral and shell crest. The rest of the frame has a lovely simplicity, just its gorgeous gilt. 

It has its original mercury glass in superb condition. Mercury glass was not made after 1840 and gives a sparkle and reflection like no other. 

It has its lovely original panelled back. 

It would make a stunning overmantel or would be beautiful hanging alone on a wall or above a console table in a hall perhaps.
