A large antique silver toilet mirror of rectangular form with a traditional gadroon border and smart, clean lines. Excellent size. Would look amazing as a wall mirror. The reverse side has wall hanging hooks and also the wooden easel stand for use as a dressing mirror.
Height 54cm. Width 46.8cm.
Maker Benjamin Bathurst.
This elegant furnishing item is full of charm and antiquity. We particularly like the three little wing nuts on the corners which assemble the mirror together.
Marks. Stamped on all four sides with a full set of matching English silver hallmarks. Some marks are bit rubbed but readable.
Presentation. There is a presentation plaque on the reverse side “EDWARD BARING – from Leopold Agar Ellis, John Bidwell, Bingham Mildmay, Philip Currie – April 1864”. Edward “Ned” Baring (1828-1892), of Baring Brothers & Co, became a partner of the family banking firm in 1856 and later the 1st Baron Revelstoke.
