19th C Oval Florentine Carved Gilt Wood Mirror

Remarkable pair of extremely large 19th Century Oval Florentine carved gilt wood mirrors standing 2.3 meters high.

European Circa 1880.

Extremely impressive, this decorative and rare pair of open carved oval gilt wood mirrors are of typical Florentine design, having flowing scrolled acanthus leaf carved frames in excellent condition retaining their original gilt work having a wonderful colour and tone with lightly foxed greyish later glass plates.

It would be a feat to find just one 19th Century oval mirror of this size let alone a pair, which goes without saying they would have been commission made for an exquisite residence and wealthy family of the 19th Century.

Extremely decorative and will work in both a contemporary and traditional interior design setting.

These mirrors have to been seen in the flesh to truly appreciate the scale and quality.

Now into the second generation, Loveday antiques is run by Alexander Loveday.

From the early days until 2012 Loveday Antiques had three major showrooms running, located at Chelsea, Ascot and Islington, but sensing the major shift towards the online side of the business in January 2013 Alexander decided to close both Chelsea and Ascot and concentrated more on working via the internet and website as traders, interior designers and the public's buying habits changed.

The internet now allows us to trade globally 24/7, whilst keeping our overheads down and passing on these savings to our clients.

The start of 2014 has also led to more change, relocating the original showroom in London from The Furniture Vault in Camden Passage, from where we have traded for over 40 years, to our new showroom conveniently located in Hertfordshire within the A1 and A10 areas, just off the M25.

The new showroom is just North of London and only a 20 minute train journey from Kings Cross, London to Stevenage, with just a short 10 minute drive from there.  We are can easily arrange to pick clients up from the station as long as you let us know when you are coming.  If you are driving, it is 10 minutes from both the A10 and A1m.
