Mostly original gilding; bevelled glass is probably original, but resilvered.

The curved scrolls dipping into the glass at the top are nowadays always associated with the maker John Belchier. Belchier has documented work at a house called Erdigg, near Wrexham (now a National Trust property), which have similar features. However, Adam Bowett (a leading furniture historian) feels it unlikely that every mirror frame with this feature would have been made by Belchier. So, I am following accepted practice by attributing it to Belchier, but hedging my bets a little.
