Extremely Rare Pair of Original White Painted English George 11 Period Carved Wood Oval Mirrors (Looking Glasses) in a manner closely resembling the meeting in style of William Kent and Thomas Chippendale. The skill of carving with strong but elegant design suggest a master at work.
We have been so used to the re guilding of mirror frames that one is inclined to forget that many frames were painted to match the colours of the interior decoration. It goes without saying this would have been for residences of the wealthy where no expense was spared at achieving their desire for the high Georgian fashion of the mid Eighteenth Century. Circa 1750.

Collections Hertfordshire and Wiltshire Country Residences

Literature: See Graham Child World of Mirrors 1650 - 1900 for two mirrors enjoying the fusion of Chippendale and Kent with overlapping designs.
We are still researching to find the exact design.
