Description:
This a highly desirable c. 1680-1700 Baroque Period Dutch mirror. This mirror has all of the fine details of Dutch Baroque Mirrors of the period. The mirror features several carved and raised moldings that have been ebonized and further embellished with figured walnut banding. The outset corners further highlight the intricacies of the frame. All elements of the mirror are original with the exception of the mirror plate. There have been restorations to the moldings where minor worming has occured. The surface of the molding section has been re-ebonized; it appears that the walnut banding retains its original surface. There is a centuries old restoration to the walnut banding at the lower right hand corner; I have chosen not to restore this old period restoration so as to maintain the integrity of the mirror believing that these old restorations add character and soul to the piece. The back maintains its original hand forged hooks and all of the backing boards, with one replaced board. We have not quite completed the restoration of the moldings; I will post additional photos of the mirror when fully restored.
