an ornate gold framed mirror hanging on the wall
A Rare And Large Early 19th Century Japanned Mirror
A very detailed and profusely decorated japanned mirror of great scale. Throughout the frame there are figures gathering , naval scenes and floral settings. bordered on both sides with silver gilt columns wrapped in leaf work and further floral decor. The top crest is decorated with beautifully executed trellis work terminating in stylistic dragon heads holding branches of more leaf motifs and flowers. The inner border surmounting the original mercury plate has a wonderful pattern of red and silver shaded diamonds and ovals connected with floral motifs. The way the decoration is applied makes it look as if the border is set in with gemstones.
