Regency period Bird's-Eye Maple and Mahogany Mirror in the Gothic Taste

16,500.00

This stunning and extremely rare mirror is one of the finest examples of the English Regency period in the Gothic and Romantic Medieval taste. Made of highly figured bird’s-eye maple it shows remarkable similarities to the designs in this genre to the architect James Wyatt (1749–1813) and the work of the cabinet maker George Bullock (1777 –1818). The corner infills are identical to a chair attributed to Wyatt in the Victoria and Albert Museum while the Geometric frieze and base to each column are typical of Bullock. Most striking is the close connection to The Broadway Tower in Worcestershire, the inspiration of Capability Brown and designed by Wyatt for the Countess of Coventry and built for her in 1798–1789 as a folly from which she could view her vast estate.

Circa 1815
