Research
Each with relief decorated domed d-molded frame containing an original beveled mirror plate.  The complimentary crests composed of a system of very fine rococo ornament. The aprons similarly carved. Original gilding refreshed.

This pair of mirrors is executed very much in the manner of the renowned German rococo ornamental carver, Ferdinand Hundt (1703–1758). Although the rococo style was born in France, the German interpretation “often exceeded French models in fantasy and extravagance and extended into built architecture.”
