Regency Carved & Gilded Convex Mirror
A fabulous Regency gilded convex mirror, surmounted by a spectacular carved winged dragon standing on a rocky base and flanked by beautifully carved hippocampi or mythical sea horses. The original mercury glass plate is surrounded by an ebony reeded slip. The base of the carved and gilded frame is decorated with carved acanthus leaves. The condition of this Regency giltwood mirror is good, the mercury plate has, over many years, acquired a very soft mottling and patina, whilst this adds to the character and appeal, the reflective element of the mirror is retained. This rare and exquisite antique mirror would make a strong decorative statement and is ready to place as a focal point in any interior.
