French 19th Century Parcel-Gilt, Hand-Painted Mirror with Shell-Carved Crest

A French parcel-gilt and hand-painted carved mirror from the 19th century with shell, foliage and bead motifs. This French wall mirror features an exquisite carved crest, adorned with a central shell accented with petite beads, flanked with C-scrolls and a delicate arabesque of scrolling foliage. The mirror shows a Louis-Philippe influence with its rectangular shape and rounded upper corners.  A cream colored painted ground contrasts with gilded accents. The central mirror plate is directly surrounded by petite beads while the central gilded molding is etched with delicate foliage motifs with red undertone. The result mixes clean Louis-Philippe lines with a Rococo flavor in the crest.
