The mirror appears to retain it’s original, nicely aged, water gilding; with minor repairs and refreshing in places. An extremely neat and elegant piece of a size which lends itself to enhancing both a modern or traditional home.
George Hepplewhite (d1786) was apprenticed to Robert Gillow in Lancaster and later moved to St Giles, Cripplegate in London where he established a workshop and business. Hepplewhite was a contemporary of Thomas Chippendale dying only seven years later, his style was lighter and with more elegance and grace than that of Chippendale’s. After his death his widow Alice carried on his business and in 1788 published The Cabinet-Maker and Upholsterer’s Guide with about 300 of his designs which was to become a leading influence for several generations of furniture makers in the next centuries.
