Description Two couples are separated by a tree from which the God of Love throws arrows down on them. At the right the young gentleman kneels and is crowned by his lady; at the left the young lady holds a chaplet and is caressed by her gentleman. The left portion, including the male figure, is a restoration dating before 1924. The case has a simple beveled edge on which perch the monster corner terminals. Some question has been raised about the nationality of the mirror: whether it might be German or English because of the large heads and faces and the rather simple drapery, which are uncharacteristic of French work.
