An exceptional carved giltwood rococo pier glass in the manner of Thomas Chippendale, the original mirror plates surrounded by a highly elaborate frame adorned with ho-ho birds, baskets of flowers, interlocking c scrolls and rocaille ornament.
Thomas Chippendale "Gentleman and Cabinet-makers Director 1754 plates CXL1,CXL11,CXL111 and CXLV11, the latter two depicting exotic birds on the frames. Chippendale's contemporary the carver gilder and designer Thomas Johnson also produced closely related patterns in his "Collection of Designs" 1758 and "One hundred and fifty new designs" 1761. His name is often associated with mirrors of this period that incorporate elements with a rustic theme, including figures, animals and birds, perhaps inspired by Aesop's Fables.
This magnificent mirror retains its original mercury plates and gilding.
