English Regency carved gilt wood eagle convex mirror c.1830
Classic English Regency carved giltwood eagle convex mirror c.1830. The gilding has been refreshed and she positively glows. A separate wooden slip border surrounds the mirror. A real statement piece that would suit a contemporary or a more traditional interior.
These mirrors were displayed in dining rooms where entertainment was occurring. The outward bending glass (convex) allowed the butler and servers to survey the entire room, where glasses needed refilling, plates clearing and so on, while staying discreetly out of sight.
