A George III white painted overmantel mirror attributed to Thomas Chippendale. This extraordinary overmantel mirror was until recently in the north bedroom on the second floor of Nostell Priory. Although James Paine was responsible for some of the earlier furnishings at Nostell, this mirror far more reflects the style and grace usually associated with Thomas Chippendale.

Following Robert Adam’s appointment to refurbish Nostell, Chippendale’s workshop was commissioned to supply a wide variety of furnishings, including those for the neoclassical state bedroom, a Palladian pedestal desk and even the butcher’s block in the kitchen.

The frame retains most of the original white painted surface. The mirror plate is a 19th century replacement.

Literature: Gervase Jackson-Stops, ‘Nostell Priory’, revised edition, 1994, p. 4.
