A fine and important pair of mid 18th century carved giltwood border glass mirrors in the manner of William and John Linnell, having 18th century replacement plates divided by a rocaille carved fillet, with straight cresting surmounted by stylised pierced foliate plumes, and serpentine sides with pierced C-scrolls with cascading floral garlands; having shaped apron centred by a foliate cartouche.

Note: This outstanding pair of mirrors shares many similarities with a pair of pier glasses supplied by John Linnell to Stowhead, Wiltshire and with a sketch of a mirror now in The Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
