Pair of Victorian Girondelle Mirrors


An unusual pair of Victorian oval bevel edged wall mirrors or 'Girondelle'.

The mirrors have a pair of semi-circular glass arms supporting brass candle sconces at each end.

The oval mirrors are decorated around the edge with reverse cut flowers and are mounted on red velvet covered boards.

In the centre of the arms is a bevel edge shield with a reverse cut Caduceus symbol.

The caduceus is the traditional symbol of Hermes and features two snakes winding around an often winged staff. It is often mistakenly used as a symbol of medicine instead of the Rod of Asclepius, especially in the United States.

The pair of mirrors are in good condition. (Circa 1880)
