An extremely rare early 18th century gilt gesso wall lantern attributed to John Belchier, retaining the original bevelled mirror plate and curved glass door and the original gilding; having a shaped cresting with stylised plumage and shaped apron with Prince of Wales feathers and acanthus leaf decoration and a hinged door decorated with strapwork interspersed with floral and lead carving.
An attribution to John Belchier, a Huguenot émigré, is based on stylistic similarities to mirrors and other furniture by him, as well as on the exceptional quality in craftsmanship associated with his workshop.
