Irish 18th century Wall Mirror.

Large Georgian period Irish carved giltwood and gesso mirror.

The cartouche centred in the middle of the broken swan neck pediment is decorated with rosettes and various mouldings including ‘egg and dart’ and acanthus leaf decoration. The carved bust is surmounted on a scrolled and embossed plinth with trailing flowers above a carved stiff leaf border with re-entrant corners. The later replaced mercury mirror plate is clear of foxing and large blemishes and is off period. The sides are decorated with scrolled leaf work and flank an array of trailing flowers, oak leaves, wheat sheaves, acorns and hops. The inverted shell that centralises the apron is shaped with carved ‘C’ scrolls and rising acanthus leaf decoration. 

The mirror is influenced by the 18th century architect William Kent who favoured the Palladian style.
