Regency Pair of Giltwood and Gesso English Overmantle Mirrors (England, circa 1830)

Regency Pair of Giltwood and Gesso English Overmantle Mirrors

Regency Pair of Giltwood and Gesso English Overmantle Mirrors (England, circa 1830)


A very attractive and rarely found pair of regency
period giltwood and Gesso overmantle mirrors having
roman scenes to top panel over triple split bevelled
mirror plates flanked by elegant carved columns

(A good example in terms of design for overmantel mirrors
incorporating Apollo on his chariot, which is something regularly 
depicted in these types of mirrors throughout the 19th century.
These particular mirrors are Regency which is when they first 
began to use this design with the versions made throughout 
the following 80 years of so generally, but not always, of lesser
quality and elegance. It is also incredibly rare to find a pair of these
still together. You will often come across pairs that have been put
together but that have variations in sizes, or slight design differences
but these are identical in all ways. They would be absolutely perfect in
the right setting and maybe they offer a solution that not many other 
items available out there do? They are both in good condition with 
the usual various pieces of historic damage in terms of scuffs, scrapes,
chips, breaks etc but nothing at all of concern or that you would not
expect to find on items that are 200 or so years old and they are most 
certainly ready to place straight into position.)
