French Mirrors? CAST IRON? Oh YES!


We are all familiar with the French Trumeau, the Louis Phillippe, the Restoration etc.
I LOVE these Art Deco pieces.......They have soft details we don't associate with Art Deco.
Like flowers and bows.  This one is from the Rhone Valley  made in the 30's.


Here is another example...A silver one I love the shape, and the tassels. 
Negrel Antiques Austin www.negrelantiques.com 14 x 31 it lists for 1250.00

 

This oval is great with the floral detail......17 x 29 and sells for 1395.00. Also at Negrel.




Don't let this fool you this is a large mirror selling for 9000.00 at
 Newel
 Antiques in New York www.newelantiques.com



This is also a beautiful example and big.........Reminds me of Estate Jewelry....in the 7000.00 range also at Newell.
So what do you think, do you like them too???????? I liked them so much I bought one....A small one.
The first one..... It is still in Austin.... But I already have a place picked out......;)

  1. Very nice mirrors!
    I also prefer the first one with it's slightly 'off-set' frame.
