Ebonised and Gilt-Brass Mounted Mirror by Rose Uniacke

The outer rectangular frames with reeded mouldings and gilt-brass paterae to the corners enclosing a central scallop edged oval plate with trefoil frame and having scrolling gilt-brass mounts to the corners. Each being ebonised.

This unusual Regency design owes much in its conception to George Bullock's strong Neo-Classical designs; the brass mounts are particularly reminiscent of his work and one could surmise that the components were bought from the dispersal sale at Tenterden Street in 1819. (Rose Uniacke)
