George II Looking Glass

Circa 1740-1760
Mahogany, original silvered, beveled glass
18.5″ W; 59″ H


This George II pierced shell looking glass survives in overall original condition complete with original glass and back board, a rare find. The glass is also beveled and the frame highlighted by original water gilding.


WHY WE LOVE IT: Large early Georgian mirrors really make me happy!  To think of the gilt work, wood work, and silvered glass, they were such important elements in an 18th century home.
