An Unusually Large 19th Century Scottish Country House Convex Mirror



Circa: 1840

Depth: 4"

Width: 34"

Period: William IV

Location: Hungerford

Of unusually large size, the mirror retains the original convex mirror plate and gilt surface. It has moulded decoration to the frame and still retains the makers label to the reverse. Joseph Luis was a carver, gilder and picture frame maker who was based in Edinburgh. From the size of this mirror, it would have been an expensive commission for an important Scottish house of the early 19th century.
