Henry Harvard, Dictionnaire de l'Ameublement et de la Décoration 'Depuis le XVIIIe siècle jusqu'a nos jours, vol. XI, Paris, p. 387, for a line engraving of this model

Catalogue Note

This Renaissance model is probably drawn from the Crystal mirror presented to François 1er in 1538, mentioned in the Dépenses secrètes de François 1er.  It is interesting to note Giovanni Battista Gatti exhibited two Renaissance style mirrors at the 1878 Paris Exposition Universelle, both purchased by the pioneering Victoria & Albert Museum (nos. 670-1878 and 695-1870).
