Period Frame For 1850’s Decorative Mirror

Due to the age and the weight of the mirror, the frame corners had separated, causing them to open. Rejoining brought the corners back into plane, and further stabilization was added to the reverse to help counteract the weight of the mirror, which is rather substantial. In numerous places there was loss of outer ornamentation. By using castes and molds we were able to recreate identical portions that could then be inserted. Some final gilding married the new portions to the old and gave the frame a wonderful, resplendent effect.
