A most unusual mid 18th century Chippendale period carved giltwood mirror, retaining the original divided bevelled mirror plates within a cabochon ruffled frame applied with trailing garlands of flowers and fruit to the sides and top, having a pierced and shaped apron with open leaf clasp and crested by a large running ho-ho bird with outstretched wings and flower garland in its beak.

Note: A strikingly similar mirror with very similar bird and also hung with garlands is in the collection at Burghley, Lincolnshire, in the ‘Brown Drawing Room’. This mirror is also attributed to Mayhew and Ince, who supplied many furnishings to the house in the 18th century.
