A wonderful, large cheval psyché mirror framed in faux bamboo from the Napoleon III era, the late 1800s. The mirror measures 25" wide by 46" high with beveled edges and curved top corners in the style of Louis Philippe. Elm wood has been turned and stained to closely resemble bamboo, trimming out the mirror and framing it with two side posts over rolling legs. The posts are capped with baluster finials and the legs are connected with ladder rung style supports. A paneled back protects the mirror, which pivots at its center, secured to the frame with handsome brass pinecones. Tiny brass casters at all four feet for ease of movement.

Condition: Good antique condition. The left post is a little warped, showing some asymmetry, but the mirror still pivots fine. The mirror glass has one spot of faded silvering at the back. Aged silvering has caused some light streaking. Some minor age wear on wood.
