Magnificent antique French Louis XVI style trumeau resplendent with hand-carved, gold leafed décor surrounding the original mercury glass mirror. Superb carved details throughout, including chains of flowers hanging over the mirror, give this antique piece a sculptural quality. The beautiful central fronton features a lyre, music sheets, and flowers.

Very typical of the Parisian mantel mirrors that would ornate luxurious living spaces at the end of the 19th century, after Georges-Eugene Hausmann, Napoleon III architect, redesigned the city with distinguished buildings along grand Avenues like the Champs Elysées.
