This is a fine quality carved and giltwood oval frame c.1685-1725. A work of art in its own right, these oval frames are very hard to find. It retains its original beautifully patinated gilding and is in excellent condition.
An old, slightly distressed mirror now occupies the frame and has done for some time.

William and Mary walnut framed mirror.

Item Ref
9109

William and Mary walnut cushion framed mirror, c.1690 and later.
Lovely golden colour, beautiful walnut end grain veneers with good surface patination. As is often the case, the mirror plate is later.
Although when on the wall this seems an untouched 17th century piece, the back reveals that the veneers have been removed from the original frame and skilfully reapplied to this late 19th or early 20th century one.
Why? Impossible to say, but probably to replace a worm or damp damaged frame.
Nevertheless, this is a beautiful little period mirror offered at a price about a fifth of the usual price.

SIZE: 16.5 x 15 inches.
PROVENANCE: from a collection in a Devon 15th century hall house.
