Mirror Main-Franken 1810

Wall mirror designed in the Biedermeier style (circa 1815-1848) were an important part of interior design in the Biedermeier era and were often used as decorative elements in living rooms, bedrooms, and hallways.

Biedermeier mirrors were typically rectangular and had frames made of noble woods such as cherry, pear, or mahogany. The frame was often designed in a simple and elegant style with a gentle curve at the corners. Sometimes decorative inlays, carvings, or gildings were added to adorn the frame.

The mirrors themselves were often large and had a clear, unclouded reflection. Often, a protective layer of limestone or marble was added to the back to stabilize and protect the mirror.

This Biedermeier mirror is from Main-Franken around 1810. Walnutwood veneer on softwood corpus with ebonized edge, behind glass carved, silvered and gilded chariot. The image shows God Helios and winged horses. In the base hash application. Beautiful patina!
