A Large 19th Century French Gilt overmantel Wall Mirror This Mirror has a beautiful Gilt and Gesso Frame. The carved frame is a rich gold which has darkened with age. The deep moulded frame is beautifully decorated, the arched top with a carved surmount of torches and swags. The mirror frame is in good condition, the bevelled plate mirror is also in good condition, with very minor foxing.
A VERY large pressed glass jug of some age. I believe this jug dates to the latter Victorian years, around 1880. It would be a display piece, or for flowers, as it is too heavy to use practically. I wonder whether it was produced as a show item to advertise a company's products since it is so large. In good order.
An attractive pair of small cloisonne enamel ginger jars. These ginger jars stand just over 8cm tall, and are decroated in famille vert. Internally they are a sky blue enamel. There is a small degree of damage to the lids of both, noticeable in the inside of one lid, and to the exterior of the lids when studied closely.
