Here for sale is a fantastic antique gilt gesso mirror. This Barbola mirror has a stunning ornate gesso or plaster decoration which really popular around 1900s. There is cracking to the gesso but it really adds to the charm of this fabulous bevelled mirror. It is wonderful size perfect for a small area to bounce light and to enjoy and use.


There are some looses to the frame but this has been painted in gilt so doesn't effect the mirror in anyway. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
