Object Description

This is an extremely accomplished mirror frame for the period, with deep well-formed carving throughout.

A simple concave moulding border surrounds the 17th century mercury mirror plate but the frame is anything but. The deeply carved giltwood outer frame is centred by a superbly executed mask or putti adorned with leaves and flora. The sides are equally impressively decorated with opposing eagles on ball and claw. To the base, a mask known as a ‘green-man’ flows without break into large scrolling leaves and grapes.

It should be noted that this piece is in the most wonderful condition with original gilding and what appears to be the original 17th century mercury mirror plate.
