Georgian Mid-Eighteenth Century Carved Giltwood Rococo Mirror
This spectacular mirror could only have come from a period country house due to the quality of the carving and its size. It bears the bright yellow bole below the gilding which is so typical of early furniture treated in this way. A mirror from the age of Chippendale and his contemporaries and an extremely rare piece.
It has undergone some restoration to the gilding and some alterations throughout its long life, namely it has been reduced in size but the carving alone is of a standard that is almost unrecognisable in the revival pieces that are seen on today’s market. A truly beautiful and remarkable example of carving from the early Georgian period.
