Circa 1890, an unusual Swedish carved gesso and giltwood mirror. At the top there is a large foliate carving with a goat entwined in oak vines. There is a mixture of water leaf and gold leaf gilding and the contrast between them is very stylish. As the pediment continues down it is carved into the sides of the frame, running down both sides and along the base. At the base is a rectangular gilded section with a simple beading on the edge. The mirror retains its original glass.
