FULL DESCRIPTION
A rarely found high quality Regency cheval mirror in excellent condition with original oval set mirror plate and retaining all of its original brass fitments. Not stamped but dating from c. 1815 and clearly of Gillows quality and design, see plate 634 in "Gillows of Lancaster & London 1730-1840" Susan E Stuart. A fair number of Gillows pieces made at this time were not stamped.

Original articulated and folding brass candle sconces - adjustable on brass rods - so that height and position can be set on both sides. Long swept reeded legs terminating in original brass lions paw feet with substantial brass casters.

Panelled solid mahogany back, very fine ebonised ring turnings to all supports and stretchers and ebonised finials. Inlaid with ebony and rosewood losenges to each panel of the supports.

The mirror framed in a deep oval border of well figured mahogany, thickly cut and having an excellent colour (some old restorations to this border but nothing noticeable or diminishing). The mirror plate original and fully reflective, having an attractive soft grey hue. The brass fittings in fine fettle and working original condition with only minor dings, marks and wear.

Substantial and robust, the mirror is adjustable on leather washers and is practical and usable.

A very beautiful and rare mirror.
