A George III style giltwood overmantel mirror, 19th century

Catalogue Note

This flamboyant frame, a riot of chinoiserie design, is in the Chinese Chippendale style and appears to be inspired by the following plates, nos. CXLI – CXLVII, from Thomas Chippendale’s The Gentleman and Cabinet Maker’s Director of 1754. There are similar designs by Thomas Johnson and Ince and Mayhew which also feature in their plate books of 1758 and 1762 respectively. The superb quality of the carved elements on the present example point to a 19th century copyist of some standing who was clearly inspired by the greatest cabinetmakers of the 18th century.
