These exceptionally well carved mirrors are in the manner of Thomas Chippendale and take their inspiration from a design for a pier glass frame published in 1754. The spirit of the drawing is apparent in these mirrors. The conception of the ho-ho birds relates in much detail to the well documented girandoles with ho-ho birds at Dumfries House in Scotland.

The mirror plates are mercury silvered replacements.
