Description

This is an absolutely stunning early / mid 18th century mirror. We believe the carved frame is English but the decorated mercury plates appear Venetian being both reverse hand engraved and etched. There was a strong trade in glass from Venice to England for 100's of years. The glass plates are wafer thin as in the finest glass of the period. There are cracks in 2 of the plates but none missing
The frame is exceptional having been carved from one solid piece of wood
probably Lime, just the 3 crest feathers are added one has a small loss.
The pictures of the back really show its originality and the fact the plates are original and have never been removed and the nails have never been removed.
This really is a museum quality piece and a true survivor.
