Antique Chippendale style Mirror from England
Fine Quality Early 19th century English 'Chippendale' period Mirror in marquetry Walnut frame . With bevelled mercury silvered glass, the mirror is set into a hand carved walnut frame with a carved & gilded 'bird of paradise' set into the pediment ,a gilded edge moulding and an inlaid marquetry cartouche set in the bottom apron.
A bit posher than the sort of antique I normally sell, this is a fine quality piece from the classic age of English furniture.
Late Georgian to early Victorian period ( 1760-1830)
Measures 34 inches tall x 22 wide
In good condition with some fashionable tarnishing/deterioration to the mercury mirroring. (The primary photo shows a false standardised mirror background according to Ruby Lane's rules- look at the second (original ) photo to get a truer view of how the mirror glass actually looks) An old wood repair also showing on reverse of the frame.
