Favourite Item
A very fine George III period Irish carved giltwood mirror, the bevelled plate held within a finely carved flat relief highly decorated frame surmounted by a basket of flowers, the base with a carved scallop shell and the sides with trailing foliage and flowers, all amongst a plethora of scrolls, flowerheads and leaf fronds.

This flat relief form of carved decoration in the giltwood frame is typically associated with Ireland, as is the use of a basket of flowers for the central cresting.
Private Collection, Ireland
