An eclectic vintage red lacquered wood Chinoiserie mirror, French mid-century. The long wood frame has a distinctly Moorish shape, with squared bottom half and arched, scalloped top, but classic chinoiserie decoration. The red lacquer wooden frame has molded edges with gilt accent. Along the frame are raised decorations with gilded embellishment, including boats, temples and flowers, all with hand painted black details and foliate designs. Further gilt painting at the corners shows stylized Moorish stars. Flat panel protective backing.
Condition: Good vintage condition. Spot of silvering loss on left side due to framing nail hitting glass. A little gilt loss in places on the trim and minor fading on some paint. Slight lacquer damage on sides at the back.
