An unusual late 18th century gilt ‘composition’ upright rectangular border glass mirror, retaining all the original mirror plates and most of the original gilding within a frame of palm fronds and floral ties, having a shaped pierced cresting centred by a shell cartouche.

Note: The use of palm fronds on this frame is comparable to carvings at Spencer House, St James’s, London, by John Vardy. ‘Composition’ is a mixture of chalk whiting, animal glue, paper fibre, linseed oil and natural resins, pressed into moulds and then applied to a timber sub frame.
