19th Century Empire Cheval Mirror

  • H: 175 cm (68 7/8")
  • W: 85 cm (33 7/16")
  • D: 40 cm (15 3/4")

A 19th Century French Empire cheval mirror with ormolu mounts, circa 1830.

Cheval mirrors, or dressing mirrors, were first made in Paris. They evolved from the first free-standing mirrors, 'toilet mirrors,' which were invented in the late 17th Century. 

By the early 18th Century, larger plates of glass allowed for larger mirrors and the cheval mirror arrived. These mirrors share the French word for horse, as they are mounted on four legs. Swivel screws allow the mirror to tilt back and forth, so you can view an entire outfit. 

This mirror has ormulu mounts and a central motif of cornucopia to the triangular top.

Cheval mirrors are lovely, traditional pieces which are perfect for filling a bedroom corner or hallway.
