A Very Rare Early 18th Century George I Period Walnut And Giltwood
Pier Mirror Having Eagle Heads And Scrolls To Top And Strapwork
Decoration Above Split Bevelled Mirror Plates (top original, bottom replaced)
Bordered By Attractive Walnut Frame.

Pier mirrors were generally designed in this tall and narrow form
to fill the brick piers between the windows of grand houses, however
nowadays of course there is a wide variety of different positions
they can be used in to offer a different perspective in any room.

This early 18th century pier mirror is rare for a number of reasons.

Firstly it is most unusual to find a mixture or walnut veneer and gilded
decoration on a large mirror like this in the early 18th century.

It is also quite rare to find any original glass in mirrors from this period
and as explained above this has an original top plate.

The reason for a split plate is because in the early 18th century they
simply hadn’t developed the ability to make mirror plates large
enough to fill mirrors of this size in one, hence the split design.

The frame is beautifully decorated, with strap work decoration and
the carved eagles heads at the top.

Circa 1720.

Height – 65in.
Width – 27in.
