A George III style gilt and ebonised overmantel mirror with rope and tassel surround, stylised dolphins support candle shelves either side. The frame has been entirely hand carved in mahogany by our dedicated, highly skilled craftsmen. Upon arriving in England, it was sent to our gilding workshops in Devon where it was water gilded in 23¾ carat gold leaf, layed over a dark red bole and burnished with an agate stone in the appropriate areas with toning and subtle rub-through to create a warm and impressive piece. Width 37¾” (96.5cm) | Depth 1¾ (4.5cm) | Height 41¼” (105cm) £4,040
Brights of Nettlebed have a particular affinity with antique mirrors: Our patrimony stems from Biggs of Maidenhead, an antique dealership established in 1866 and contributors to the publication Queen Anne
& Georgian Looking Glasses by F. Lewis Hinkley. Many of the antique mirrors which passed through Biggs are now in our archive. All bespoke work is overseen by director, Henry Stamp, who personally manages a small team of carefully selected artisans to ensure the highest quality and consistency.
