The back of this mirror frame reveals a lot about its pedigree and heritage .. (photo 4)
It has been carefully and painstakingly crafted. The carcass timber and framing blocks are all original and have never been disturbed. They have all been chiselled and parred down by hand to reduce their thickness and weight.
There is a carved date to the back of the crest ‘1741’ and the word ‘London’ together with a carved coat of arms (unidentified) featuring a cormorant or heron? The rough hewn backboards have never been disturbed confirming the originality of the plate glass within.
