An 18th-century mirror frame in need of restoration. It was probably made for a rich winegrower or wine merchant.
The 18th-century mirror found its place in the house of a former winegrower.
The top part of this other 18th-century mirror frame is completely gone.
After trying other solutions I constructed a third circle. All three now dance to the music of the lute.
Another top in need of repair. This mirror frame dates back to about 1860, when France was ruled by Napoleon III, a nephew of Napoleon I.
The Napoleonic emblems (eagle, quiver and torch) are all there, along with rosettes in vogue in the days of Marie Antoinette.
