Antique English 17th century mirror

An oval antique English 17th century mirror retaining its original silverleaf gilding.  Hand carved sight edge, scotia, leaf and flower panels with cross-hatched background, concave carving to the reposes and leafwork to the back edge.  The plain burnished hollow brings a mirror-like quality which can be used effectively on darkly decorated walls or shadowy interiors and the gilding particularly alluring under candle light giving the frame a gentle glimmer.

Original silverleaf, mirror plate possibly 19th Century.
