An Ormolu Art Nouveau Console Mirror
One of the most outstanding pieces of ormolu furniture is this Art Nouveau console mirror. I have done some close up photography of the various parts of this piece. The second photo shows the table at the base of the mirror. It has raised designs of lilies and has open pierce work around the edge of the table. This particular piece is great in a hallway where you can place calling cards for people entering your home. The top and sides of the mirror have ormolu swags and beautiful lilies wrapped around the mirror. The console mirror is hung on the wall and the piece under the table braces or supports the entire mirror. The brilliant ormolu is the very best I have ever seen. There is not any discoloration on the front or back and the original mirror is still mounted in the frame. A truly outstanding piece.
