A highly elaborate and most important mid 18th century Chippendale period carved giltwood border glass mirror in the manner of John Linnell, the cartouche shaped frame, with an oval upper plate with a larger replaced 18th century oval plate below, within a rocaille slip. The original border glass plates divided by fine foliate carving and enriched with elaborate foliage and surmounted by crestings of a pierced basket issuing foliate sprays above an arched pediment flanked by gadrooned urns with further foliate sprays, and having a shaped tapering pendant apron.

Note: A very similar mirror, also attributed to Linnell, is illustrated in Herbert F.Schiffer, ‘The Mirror Book: English, American & European’.
