Favourite Item
An extremely rare near pair of early 18th century gesso and carved giltwood mirrors of very small size in the manner of Benjamin Goodison, each having a replaced shaped and bevelled mirror plate within a rope carved frame with sanded border and lobed square corners with stiff leaf decoration and having an open pediment with floral paterae and ducal crown cresting.

Note: There are slight differences in the size and design of the frames. One mirror has at some stage been reduced in size. These mirrors were once part of the seminal Percival D. Griffiths Collection, created under the guidance of R. W. Symonds. The collection was indisputably one of the most important furniture collections ever assembled, and it formed the basis of Symonds’s highly regarded book ‘English Furniture from Charles II to George II.’
