My Ronald Phillips +44 (0)20 7493 2341

A rare mid 18th century Chippendale period carved giltwood overmantel mirror retaining two of the original mirror plates divided by stylised columns with waterfall decoration, the shaped sides carved with C-scrolls and ruffles and decorated with finely carved acanthus leaves scrolling over the shaped top similarly carved with C-scrolls and centred by a leaf clasp flanked by waterfall decoration.

Note: One shaped side plate is an 18th century replacement. Rococo mirrors with an early American provenance are extremely rare, and only one other such example is known to exist, in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.

Literature: Amelia Peck, ‘Period Rooms in The Metropolitan Museum of Art’, 2004, p. 202.
