Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
This mirror dates to the end of the nineteenth century. The design is a close representation of one of the most recognisable forms in early eighteenth century English furniture: a shaped frame with corresponding beveled plate. This is most closely associated with furniture from the reigns of Queen Anne (who reigned from 1702-1714) and George I (1714-1726). This example closely follows earlier models in its scale and proportions. The brass candle arm has also been shaped and fashioned in the traditional eighteenth century manner.
For an historic outline of English looking glasses we would recommend 'World Mirrors 1650-1900' by Graham Child - Sotheby's Publications, London, 1990.
