Object Description

A Fine Regency Period Giltwood Circular Convex Mirror, Surmounted With Attractive Stylised Dolphin Set Upon Rocks And Foliage To Top, Above Moulded Giltwood Concave Frame With Gilt Ball Border, Flanked By Elegant Original Candle Arms To Each Side And Acanthus Leaves Carved Below.

A very attractive and good example of the sterotypical regency period convex mirror. It is full of class and elegance and would be a real feature in any room of any property.

Although of relatively standard size, the carved decoration is particularly nice on this mirror and extremely well executed.

Overall it remains in good condition and the gilding has aged nicely, taking on an attractive gold lustre over time. One would imagine that the mirror has hung in one place for a large part of its life as there are very few repairs, or significantly damaged areas to speak of.

There are of course various old marks, scuffs, scrapes and rubbed areas, all of which are commensurate with age and add to the overall character of the piece without detracting from it aesthetically in the slightest. We also believe that the mirror plate itself is probably original.

The original purpose of convex mirrors was to reflect and spread the light source into as many parts of a room as possible and this is turn can often make a room feel significantly bigger.

Circa 1820.
