Giltwood Mirror in the Manner of Thomas Chippendale

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

With an elaborately caved gold leaf framed with free scrolling lappet branches in the rococo style, the base with inverted cabriole legs and a central shell and leaf cartouche, the plate divided by a floral garland and the whole surmounted by an intricate foliate leaf spray,
circa 1880

Mirrors of this style were prevalent in the early 1760 to the 1770s or George III style with a number of notable makers producing designs, such as John Linnell Ince and Mayhew, and Thomas Johnson. This particular mirror closely follows the designs of Thomas Chippendale's drawing of a console table and mirror from approximately 1760 depicted in 'English Furniture Designs of the Eighteenth Century' published by the Victoria and Albert Museum, 1958.
