Italian 19th C. Mirror w/ Carved Birds and Olive Wreath

An Italian giltwood crested mirror from the 19th century, with carved birds and olive tree wreath. Born in Italy during the 19th century, this exquisite wall mirror attracts our attention with its gilded tones and skillfully carved crest. Handsome birds, flanked with volutes, are resting on various pedestals while an olive tree wreath adorns the background. The rectangular mirror plate, showing some slight signs of aging, is surrounded by a carved molding boasting waterleaves and petite beads, while the mirror's upper section is decorated with fluted motifs and tassels. With its clean lines and lovely carved crest, this Italian 19th century giltwood mirror will be a great focal point in any home, perhaps hung above a credenza, commode or console table.
