Exzellentes Paar Louis XIV Spiegel, Frankreich, ca,. 1710


Pair of finely carved cartouche-shaped giltwood mirrors, centered on top by an espagnolette mask and suspended swags of bellflowers. Sides and bottom carved with acanthus leaves, bottom centered by patterae on gesso carved back. Espagnolettes type masks are standard in 17th and 18th century ornamental schemes. Our mirror frame is closely associated with the designs published by Daniel Marot (1663-1752), in particular with his design for a mirrored candle sconce (last image). See: Marot, Daniel: Das Ornamentwerk des Daniel Marot: in 264 Lichtdrucken nachgebildet, Berlin, 1892, p. 151
