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.
