ClICK IMAGE TO ENLARGE

A George II giltwood oval mirror

Mercury silvered glass probably original; water-gilding restored.

This is a William Kent period oval looking-glass from the 1740s or possibly 50s. A pleasing design and well executed carving are almost over-shadowed by a quirky piece of whimsey - the visible area of glass is perfectly egg shaped. Not something we have seen before.
