Built in the style of an antique monument, the mirror resumes the major characteristics of the "neo-classic" style that were in vogue in the first decades of the XIXth Century. Vocabulary and motifs make reference to classical antiquity, the iconographic repertory hints at the military universe (laurel wreathes on upper part), and mythological universe (Apollon chariot motifs on the upper centre part).
