A French Folk Art mirror from the early 20th century, with heart and star motifs. This French Folk Art mirror features an elegant Louis-Philippe inspired Silhouette, recognizable by its linear frame topped with rounded corners. While Louis-Philippe mirrors are traditionally silver or gold gilt, this mirror shows its Folk Art touch by the treatment of its décor: the nicely textured background is accented by sweet heart and star motifs, placed symmetrically along the frame. The lower section of the mirror is adorned with the name “Elise Jeannin” for whom this mirror was undoubtedly made. Perhaps was this a wedding present. With its elegant lines and lovely décor, this French Folk Art mirror circa 1920 will bring a charming presence in any room, particularly in a country home.
