A large early 19th century English Regency neoclassical convex mirror in a round gilt and partially ebonized wood frame.
The fluted frame is decorated with a ring of gilt wood balls. An elaborately carved and gilt wood figure of an eagle spreading its wings and sitting on top of a small landscape socle framed by foliage ornaments tops the mirror. The bottom of the mirror is decorated by a laurel leaf ornament. The original convex mirror glass shows some traces of corrosion.
Excellent piece of elaborate carving with beautiful patina, matching perfectly with a classical as well as a modern ambiance.
