Water-gilding restored; mercury silvered glass 19th century.

The flat sanded areas are left matt, while the gilding on the applied decoration is burnished. This was a way of giving added visual depth to the piece. The swan neck pediment with rounded top is unusual. These Kentian mirrors exhude plutocratic seriousness.
