This antique Italian giltwood mirror is called a “caminiera” mirror as it was intended to be placed above a fireplace (“camino” in Italian), however, it is stunning also over a chest or console table.  The handcarved and gilded mirror has great neoclassical details including an urn as the focal point at the top center and scrolls of acanthus leaves on all four corners. The feet are highly detailed with a ribbed texture.  The mirror glass is in very good condition and is slightly wavy.
