A 19th century large gilt overmantle mirror. Retaining its original bevelled mirror plate. This massive antique Victorian giltwood overmantle mirror is carved from solid wood and is far superior to its composition (plaster) counterparts which were produced in the thousands from moulds. Each carved wood mirror is unique and will not allow the gilt to break off through the ingress of moisture. The whole is carved and turned in solid wood and gilded in 24ct gold leaf.
