Gustavian Swedish Pier Mirrors From Mallett Antiques

Gustavian Swedish Pier Mirror From Mallett Antiques

A pier mirror is a mirror which is placed between two windows.  These mirrors are  generally of a long and tall shape to fit the space. 18th century buildings often featured long windows, which the mirrors were created to complement.  These mirrors were commonly seen as a decorating feature in the rooms of large 18th century houses.

Live Auctioneers displays a rectangular pier mirror that has a beautiful urn over a frieze carved with laurel leaf swags and flowers and fluted apron below.  They estimate this mirror is between $3,000 – $5,000
