Origin: English
Period: Early / Mid Twentieth Century

Height: 37.5 inches
Width: 20.5 inches

The arched moulded section frame in the Adams style with a floral garland swag pediment and foliate mouldings having the original lead glass survives from the first quarter of the twentieth century.

There is a crack to the lower right corner of the composition frame but this aside the mirror benefits from a beautifully foxed mirror plate, the spotting effecting one particular area more than the rest. A more recent backing board has been added relatively recently and is ready to hang.

A very pretty wall mirror with enough character to happily trump its contemporary rivals.
