Rocaille Silver Gilt Leaf Mirror
Our stunning Rocaille Silver Gilt Leaf 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 Silver Gilt Leaf is applied by hand in layers to create a depth to the frames colour, then hand polished to a wonderful sheen befitting of the style.
