Mirrors help give a space a lot of detail. In addition they create light and open up a space. We love antique gilt, wood mirrors in the French style. This one has such a pretty, curvy form. It holds it's original mirror with just the amount of aged "silvering" to give it extra character.
It seems there are a few tiny wood pieces that have gone missing through time. It doesnt seem to effect the mirrors presence. There is a bit of missing gilt paint that reveals the white gesso underneath here and there. Surface wear which we call patina.
