A monumental neoclassical Gold leaf over mantle mirror, c.1840. This mirror is fully constructed of wood and retains its original gold leaf surface. It is extremely massive and architectural, the corner blocks are deeply carved and three-dimensional in depth (5 inches deep). Over mantel mirrors in any period are relatively scarce and this is an exuberant example.
