A highly important and rare pair of early 18th century Palladian period carved giltwood mirrors attributed to the royal cabinet-maker Benjamin Goodison, with one original oval bevelled mirror plate and one 18th century replaced mirror plate, each within a boldly carved frame of palm fronds issuing from cornucopia to the sides, topped by emerging hounds chasing stags, having a lambrequin apron with strapwork decoration, flanked by acanthus carving and with a cresting of acanthus scrolls centred by the head of Diana, with Prince of Wales plumes above.

Note: These wonderful mirrors were originally intended for the hunting lodge of the Earl of Harrington in Richmond. The theme of hunting is beautifully expressed in each mirror by exquisitely carved hounds chasing stags to either side and by the crest of Diana, goddess of hunting.
