There is scant information about the Dieppe ivory industry during the 19th century, although the craftsmen produced a wide range of usually small carved objects for the growing tourist trade. The frames and the majority of the furniture produced were -veneered- with leaves of carved ivory pinned to a wooden carcass.
A similar pair of carved mirrors sold Sotheby's London, 29 October 2008, lot 231.
