A wonderful 18th century Italian Gesso and Giltwood framed mirror. This is a nice piece of post renaissance work, splendidly carved and moulded into a classic baroque form. “Gesso” is a traditional mix of an animal glue binder, chalk, and white pigment, used to coat rigid surfaces such as wooden painting panels as an absorbent primer coat substrate for painting.On this particular piece the original Gesso work is complimented by a 19th century piece of mirrored glass and an updated wooden strut. A great looking piece in any setting.
