A pair of early 19th century Girandole, these mirrors are supporting the original glass with gesso frame.  Gesso is a hard plaster of Paris compound, or whiting in glue moulded or sculpted as a base for gilding or painting on a wooden or wire frame.  Girandole is a branch support for candles or other lights, which project from a wall generally in the front of a mirror to give extra reflective light.  The pair of mirrors on offer in our next fine art sale, Thursday 14th February.  Lot number 377 have the added attraction of incorporating a silk lined bracket to display a porcelain figure or similar decorative.  Estimate £1,000 – 1,500 they would be a splendid addition to a home.
