Customer Question

Hello Sir/Madam,
We have a family heirloom that was purchased at auction in the mid 19th century. it has been described as a Louis Catours gilt-edged mirror but we don't actually have information regarding provenance (although I have been assured that the family once DID have proof). I am wondering how to find out more about these type of mirrors and where the best place to find other images might be (to compare). Many thanks, Kym

The family has believed that this mirror is Louis IVX but without the provenance how can I confirm this?
