Object Description

Early C19th Regency gilt Mirror in the style of Thomas Hope, gesso and ebonised Overmantel Mirror with ebonised reeded slips under an inverted break front shaped pediment.  To the top pediment corvetto balls with fluted pilasters under. Ebonised Sphinx heads and feet to top and bottom of pilasters. Interestingly the design of this mirror may have been influenced by the architecture in the publication in 1802 of Dominique Denon’s Voyages Dans la Basse et Haute Egypte. This publication greatly spurred on the already established interest in Egyptian Archaeology.
