This show-stopping pair of grand 18th-century wall mirrors are beautifully designed in accordance to prevailing tastes of the Rococo period and are attributed to the workshops of Würzburg or Bamberg of Lower Franconia, Germany. Dated to circa 1745-1755, the pair exemplifies Rococo furniture, defined by lavish ornamentation, lightness of form, and sculptural silhouettes.

The gorgeous wooden frames are ornately decorated with rocaille carvings of asymmetric c-scrolls and botanical foliage, sculpted with a finish of plaster, white paint and gilt pigments. Acanthus leaves enhance the scrolled design with a sense of movement and spontaneity, while graceful flower garlands drape down the sides, dotted with fruits, buds and trumpet-form blossoms. The gilding that accents the scrollwork and highlights each botanical flourish has aged beautifully with time, revealing the red underlayer with an inimitable aged finish. The intricate frames enclose large antique mirrors of two glass panes, now tarnished for an irregular, spoiled glass appearance.

Mirror backings are replacement. Minor losses to plaster finish. A clean break to one frame has been restored.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
