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 1750s. 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.
