An unusual late 18th century gilt ‘composition’ upright rectangular border glass mirror retaining all the original mirror plates and most of the original gilding within a frame of palm fronds and floral ties having a shaped pierced cresting centred by a shell cartouche.

Note: The use of palm fronds on this frame is comparable to carvings at Spencer House by John Vardy. Composition is a mixture of chalk whiting, animal glue, paper fibre, linseed oil and natural resins, this is pressed into moulds and then applied to a timber sub frame.
