Georgian Mirror with mahogany fretwork frame and gilt detail to the inner frame and Hoho bird over the top.
What is a Ho Ho bird? It is a Japanese version of the mythical Phoenix and was frequently used in Asian decorative arts and as a motif in Rococo and Georgian decoration
The glass is original and intact and does have some signs of age – minor foxing and speckles. The reverse is covered with paper which I have not removed or replaced. There is a strong hanging cord in place.
A beautiful mirror and a classic country house item.
Size – including frame 88 x 51cm. Mirror glass alone 54 x 34cm
UK shipping price is £20.
