Yellow Drawing Room Mirror

 

Date: Late 1700s

One of a pair of George III giltwood mirrors by Thomas Chippendale, with oval plates and beaded foliate carved and anthemion carved borders.

Additional Information

These mirrors were probably originally installed in the Salon (now the Main Library), c.1770-2, but removed in the 1850s when the peripheral carving was boxed up and stored in the carpenters workshop. In 1989 they were restored by Carvers & Gilders and hung in the Yellow Drawing Room.
