You should stop by the listing to see the detail pictures for this monumental (6′ x 9′) carved wooden mirror by Valentino Panciera Besarel (1829-1902), an Italian sculptor. The carvings are incredible as is the expected selling range of $100,000-$150,000. It will be sold by Bob Courtney on October 13th. More from the listing:

The find of the century! Astronomical in stature, phenomenal in nature, inconceivable in quality. This mirror is more than words can portray or express; it’s simply IRREPLACEABLE! This piece of art is dated 1863 and signed by world renown artisan Besarel for the house of Malcomb. Besarel is best known for his attention to detail and his essence to capture life like features and accents like no other. His works were highly sought after, so much so he was petitioned as the artisan for the Prince of Wales. This exact mirror is featured in the first few pages of his book of works, “Valentino Panciera Besarel 1829-1902″ as the mirror is indeed a powerful piece and warrants such attention. The base features chained guard dogs with winged cherubs gracefully leading them by their chains. The sides are flanked by additional cherubs, two celebrating music, the other two with artist palette and brush to represent the arts. Lastly, the crest adorns three cherubs representing family. Truly a magnificent opportunity to own a rarely sold signed Besarel. Don’t Miss Out! Dimensions: 110″ H x 78″ W x 12″ D Age: C. 1863 Material: Wood
