An exceptionally well drawn mirror with superbly carved decoration combining ‘C’ scrolls, cabochons, shells and foliage in a flowing design that has the inner frame linking with the outer frame in such a way as to lead the eye around the mirror. The carving is confidently handled and has such depth as to lend the mirror a truly three dimensional feel.
