Trumeau mirrors are a type of wall mirror that is set in tall wooden frames. These often display a large section of ornate carved decoration at the top. The original Trumeau mirrors that were first made in France were set into boiserie or wooden panelling and made a fancy wall accessory during the 17th and 18th centuries.
