The design exuberance in this antique French mirror perfectly embodies the spirit of life when Napoleon III reigned in France. It was a time of peace and prosperity that gave permission for an extravagance of decoration. This large mirror frame has been ebonized in deepest black pigment while the incised details are gilded. It is topped with a carved ornamental cartouche also in ebonized black and the gilded accents.
