This rare carved and gilt dolphin head over-mantle mirror with serpent-form bodies flank the cascading waterfall motifs. The quality of the carving and gesso work is further embellished by the two-toned silvering, gilt and painted surface. The symmetrical design of the serpents’ heads and well-proportioned flowing tails make the scale and size of the mirror quite desirable. The exceptional form and design is further complimented with a central deep carved shell in an imposing size.
