Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
What's incontrovertible is that it has a very rare shape. It's a bit like what are sometimes called 'guitar' shaped mirrors, but they don't have the indentation along the bottom (so to speak). You also sometimes see upside down 'heart' shaped mirrors like some that were at Harewood House, but they don't have the curvy 'waist' of this looking-glass frame.
Originally it would have had 'dressing' surrounding it – harebells, urns, etc. (Like some of the 'dressed' Adam period mirrors elsewhere on the site.)
There's no doubt it's very pretty and probably just the thing for a lady's powder room.
