In fact, one might mount a viable argument that it is neo-renaissance Italian carved. I'll let you decide, and I'll simply tell you it is a magnificent old one. The carving is just splendid and whether you hang it as a wall mirror, or end up stripping the silvering and using it as a frame for a family photo, or an antique intaglio print, or a portrait miniature - you're sure to love it for generations. If you've followed us for a while you know I'm a big fan of the old hand carved "Black Forest" items that come to us from 19th century Switzerland, Germany, parts of France and Italy, where they pleased the Grand Tour tourists and still please us all today. These hand carved treasures range from whimsical small bears to large and elaborate mantel clocks, wall clocks, wall plaques showing the most awesome anatomical studies of stag, fowl, "fruits of the hunt". I've got more to list so look through the vast collection. I've just used quite a few piece in our own 2nd home decoration , Rocky Mountains location, and love the look as well as the heritage since my own ancestors hail from that region and others. The pieces work well in Country Manor, French Country, Ski Lodge or Hunt Lodge and even in a den or office. Everything from a pocket watch case to huge plaques - from needle and thread holders to cigar caddy - these decorative objects survive today a testament to the artisan's craft of carving wood. Very good to excellent condition for age and type.

The carved shell and acanthus and figure all survive without much loss at all. Perhaps you'd find a tiny chip somewhere.

I don't see more than one tip at about the 3 o'clock position, outer edge leaf. The mirror is actually really good and clear. My photographer kept getting a brilliant reflection of himself and the fill-in flash, so he blurred it. But it's well-silvered and fine for use. The hand carved frame is 12" tall, 8.5" widest, and 1 or a bit more in thickness.

The open aperture is 4.5" x 3/5", rectangular opening from backside, as you can see. Our photos are large and clear.
