Pair of Pugin Gothic Giltwood Mirrors ~9 feet tall

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

Truly extraordinary pair of 19th century English Gothic Revival architectural mirrors, nearly 10 feet tall. In the manner of Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (aka God's Architect).

I found these in London nearly 20 years ago at an antique dealer on the Pimlico Road. They were displayed against a wall covered with dark green felt and I had to have them.

The gilding and gesso on the frames has recently been stabilized and restored.
