An exceptional overmantel mirror, inspired by the Chinese Room of Claydon. The elaborate carved decoration following the style of Luke Lightfoot in the Chinoiserie taste, a term used to express the frivolous Chinese style of decoration that enjoyed a tremendous vogue throughout Europe in the mid-18th Century. The mirror takes the form of a Chinese fretwork tea house with overhanging leaves trimmed with icicles, bells, and exuberant Rococo decoration. The front and sides embowered by clambering vines.
Bespoke sizing, design adaptations and finishing available.
