Ivory Mirror Case

Carved Ivory French Mirror Cover


Mirror Cover with the Fountain of Youth created between circa 1330 and circa 1340 (Medieval). This ivory plaque was the back for a disk-shaped mirror of polished metal, which has been replaced with a period substitute of authentic polished copper. It is carved with a scene of the Fountain of Youth. Elderly men and women walk or travel by cart from the left to the mythical Fountain of Youth at the right. They bathe and reemerge as young couples who enter into the castle at the center and court above upon the battlements. The frame, a circle within a square, has four crouched dragon-like creatures in each corner.

Item condition:—
