Our stunning Rocaille Gold Gilt Leaf Bevelled Mirror is true to its name with its beautiful scrolled shell the central focus of this impressive frame.
Rocaille is one of the more prominent aspects of the Rococo style of architecture and decoration that developed in France during the reign of King Louis XV (1715–74). The Rocaille style has been defined as a reaction both to the classic rigidity of the waning Baroque style and to the new interest in nature and the natural sciences. In French, rocaille means “rubble,” or “pebbles,” and style rocaille is synonymous with Rococo.
The Gold coloured leaf is hand applied to in layer to create a depth to the frame colours, then hand polished to a wonderful sheen befitting of the style.
