A Giltwood Mirror in the Manner of Thomas Chippendale
With an elaborately caved framed with free scrolling lappet branches in the rococo style, the base with inverted cabriole legs and a central shell and leaf cartouche, the plate divided by a floral garland and the whole surmounted by an intricate foliate leaf spray.
Mirrors of this style were prevalent in the early 1760 to the 1770s or George III style with a number of notable makers producing designs, such as John Linnell Ince and Mayhew, and Thomas Johnson. This particular mirror closely follows the designs of Thomas Chippendale’s drawing of a console table and mirror from approximately 1760 depicted in ‘English Furniture Designs of the Eighteenth Century’ published by the Victoria and Albert Museum, 1958.
