Regence Giltwood Mirror, Circa 1715-23
Step into the captivating world of French elegance with our exquisite Regence Gilt-Wood Mirror, a true testament to the artistic finesse and cultural influence of the early 18th-century Regence period in France.
The Regence period, spanning from 1715 to 1723, was a time of transition and innovation in French design and art. It bridged the opulent Baroque style of Louis XIV's reign with the more refined and whimsical Rococo style that would follow. Our Regence gilt-wood mirror encapsulates the essence of this era, showcasing its distinctive characteristics and contributing to the legacy of French design.
At the heart of this mirror is the arched mirror plate, set within a conforming frame that perfectly encapsulates the Regence aesthetic. The gentle curves and flowing lines of the frame pay homage to the transition from the rigidity of Baroque to the graceful freedom of Rococo. The surmounting military trophy, a prominent feature in the design, symbolizes the prevailing spirit of the time – a tribute to the military prowess and grandeur of France.
The military trophy was a popular motif during the Regence period, reflecting the nation's aspirations and military victories. It serves as a visual reminder of France's influence on the world stage and its desire to display its strength and power. The inclusion of this motif on our mirror not only adds a touch of historical significance but also creates a striking focal point that draws the eye and captures the imagination.
This Regence gilt-wood mirror stands as a testament to the craftsmanship and design prowess of the era. Every intricately carved foliate detail and scrolling molding speaks to the artistic virtuosity of the period's artisans. The combination of the military trophy and the delicate foliate scrolling molding creates a harmonious balance between grandeur and elegance, epitomizing the unique charm of the Regence style.
Owning this mirror is not just acquiring a piece of art but embracing a slice of French history and culture. It's an opportunity to showcase the captivating allure of the Regence period in your space, inviting the elegance and sophistication of 18th-century France into your surroundings.
Indulge in the opulence and artistry of the Regence period with our Regence Gilt-Wood Mirror – a window to a bygone era that continues to captivate and inspire.
