About

Early 19th century giltwood mirror. This monumental over the mantel (fireplace), wall or console mirror was removed from a Greenwich CT Mansion having been purchased in Sotheby’s NYC, known at the time as Park Bennett, in 1961. Part of an extensive collection consigned to Greenwich Living Design as the owner is downsizing. A simply stunning one of a kind solid wood carved 22-karat gilt gold decorated larger than life-size mirror which maintains the original center mirror framed in a Rococo seashell and rose carved frame sitting on carved gilt lion paw feet.
Rococo, less commonly Rococo or late Baroque, is an exceptionally ornamental and theatrical style of architecture, art and decoration which combines asymmetry, scrolling curves, gilding, white and pastel colors, sculpted molding, and trompe-l’œil frescoes to create surprise and the illusion of motion and drama.
