Object Description

AN IRISH GEORGE II PIER MIRROR ATTRIBUTED TO FRANCIS AND JOHN BOOKER OF DUBLIN

This extraordinary architectural mirror belongs to a group of mirrors by the Booker family that all share similar strong influences of William Kent.

A drawing by Kent for an organ case, engraved by John Vardy, relates to the design of the mirror.

A mirror formerly at St. Giles House in Dorset, England, shares many similarities and is also attributable to Booker.

The pair to this mirror is in a private collection in Ireland.

Note: The mirror plates are mercury silvered replacements.

Irish, circa 1750
