PAIR OF MIRRORS
carved and gilded wood
This splendid pair of mirrors, with their shape that recalls a Greek cornice, stands out for a band with smooth grooves, followed by a raised profile decorated with stylised leaves.
The shaped wood is engraved in the outer band, adorned with a stylised, obliquely arranged pod-shaped border, which travels around to the wall.
Majestic acanthus leaves curl inwards at the centres and corners. The decoration concludes with shells at the tip of the protruding corners.
Italy, 17th century
