Elliptical Art Deco mirror, 1925

An exquisite, elliptical Art Deco hall mirror in gilt and black lacquer, designed in the unmistakable style of Süe & Mare. The panels to the crown and foot of the mirror are delicately hand-carved with floral and geometric motifs, and then parcel gilded, and contrast against the plain, unadorned black lacquered sides and original glass plate. French, circa 1925.

Louis Süe (1875-1968) was a French painter, architect, designer and decorator. Süe, and the painter André Mare (1885-1932), co-founded the Compagnie des Arts Français in 1919, which designed and created early Art Deco furniture and interiors for a prestigious clientele, including Jean Patou and Helena Rubenstein. Süe also designed the interiors of two passenger ocean liners, and as a partnership Süe & Mare were respected pioneers of the early Art Deco movement.
