large, rectangular mirror began life as the door to an armoire or cabinet, as
we have surmised from the keyhole on the left vertical member of the
frame. But separated from its former
function it has taken on an independent life as a magnificent hanging mirror. Based on the construction of solid,
old-growth walnut and the Renaissance stylistic elements, we would classify
this mirror as Henri II in style and spirit.

Anywhere that one would place a large mirror, this one would command attention, including in an entryway or foyer, above a chest, over a fireplace, or simply all by itself.
