Catalogue Note

The present mirror is designed in the English rococo style as evinced by the strongly carved foliate tendrils, prevalent in furniture designs up to the end of 1760s. The form suggests the influence of such makers as Thomas Chippendale, who in his Director (pl. CLXXII) published a design which relates to the present lot.
