Restoration of Federal Style Convex Mirror

Federal style convex mirror with reeded/strapwork edge, spherules, and ebonized inner edge. Shown here as found with a flat glass, much gesso loss on spherules, minor losses to rim, and all gilded areas coated in bronze paint.

Restoration included new gesso on spherules and water gilding, and replacing flat mirror plate with a lightly distressed convex mirror. This mirror would now be the focal point of any room.
