The cornucopias were rich mirrors that were pieces specially used during the Baroque, during the 18th century and much of the 19th. Since they were furniture pieces of representation, they were made in richly carved and gilded wood, and their frames decorated with a multitude of delicate patterns in relief, worked as if they were sculptures.
The pair of cornucopias are Rococo style, presented a structure in carved, worked and gilt wood. Mouldings have decorative elements like the cresting of road metal, the aligners, sheets and naturalistic flowers, etc. They present a high crest, pierced like the rest of the structure, with a symmetrical and open cross-shaped structure.
