An outstanding and very rare pair of George I carved and gilt gesso mirrors retaining their original gilding, with arched bevelled plates within bevelled mirror borders, having a scrolled broken pediment centred by a later crest of a rampant lion, and with aprons decorated with acanthus leaves and flowering plants upon a pounced ground, having later scrolled glass candle arms.
Note: Retaining one original and having one 18th century replaced bevelled centre plate. The lion crestings are of a later date.
