A very special original, ornate and large, Chippendale style mirror in superb condition. Described as "a masterpiece not a mantelpiece", this rare mirror comes with a great provenance.
Chippendale Rococo style, elaborately carved featuring garlands of flowers, foliage and scrollwork above a pear shaped frame, flanked by Ho Ho birds and squirrels. Beautiful original water gilded surface and original mirror plates. Minor repairs to some extremities.
With its jaw dropping size the Nicklin Carter Mirror looks great as a stand alone - standout piece. Of course it would be equally fabulous in a home with a combination of mid century classics, antiques and art. Then again the Mirror could easily be the drawcard of a hip hotel, add gravitas to the boardroom or provide that certain 'zing' to a private club or indeed bedroom!
The thing is, you must have the room height - or be prepared to purpose build to 'show it off' - stranger things have happened!
