A highly important and extremely rare mid 18th century white painted overmantel mirror retaining most of the original paint surface, attributed to Thomas Chippendale, having a replaced 19th century rectangular mirror plate. The fine quality frame composed of stylised columns and C-scrolls with pierced scroll sides carved with entwined pendent floral sprays and acanthus leaf, having a shaped apron with scrolling leaves and central icicles and a shaped cresting with open cartouche and a leaf spray top of later date.

Note: This extraordinary overmantel mirror was until recently in the north bedroom on the second floor of Nostell Priory. Although James Paine was responsible for some of the earlier furnishings at Nostell, this mirror far more reflects the style and grace usually associated with Thomas Chippendale. Following Robert Adam’s appointment to refurbish Nostell, Chippendale’s workshop was commissioned to supply a wide variety of furnishings, including those for the neoclassical state bedroom, a Palladian pedestal desk and even the butcher’s block in the kitchen.

Price: £100,000+
Supplied to Sir Rowland Winn, for Nostell Priory, Yorkshire, by descent.
