Note: The size of the mirror plate is extraordinary; it is about as large as it was possible to produce in this early period of manufacturing mirror plates. Possessing such a large scale mirror plate would have been a statement of extreme wealth and importance at the time, emphasised by the use of exotic Japanese lacquer.
A mirror of similar size, with identical decorative border and very similar lacquer, and probably from the same workshop, was formerly at Althorp, Northamptonshire, and is now on display at the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
Crest now missing.
Frame construction: English, circa 1680
Lacquered panels: Japanese, circa 1630
Price: £100,000 +
