The elaborately carved and pierced acanthus on the cresting is a three-dimensional incarnation of the arabesque or 'seaweed' marquetry inlay on case furniture and mirror frames of the period, following Dutch examples influenced by the engravings of the Huguenot architect and designer Daniel Marot (1661-1752) and the work of the Low Countries-born royal cabinetmaker Gerrit Jensen (active 1680 - d.1715).  It is very similar to the cresting on a japanned mirror in Hampton Court, Leominster, Herefordshire, illustrated in P. Macquoid and R. Edwards, The Dictionary of English Furniture (Woodbridge 1983), Vol. II, p.318 fig.20.  Further mirrors in floral or seaweed marquetry with related cresting, including one from the Percival D. Griffiths collection, are illustrated in R. Symonds, English Furniture from Charles II to George II (London 1929, p.54 fig. 40) and Graham Child, World Mirrors (London 1990), fig. and plate 19.
