An English Georgian period giltwood convex mirror from the early 19th century, with ebonized accents and twisted rope motifs. This exquisite English mirror features a convex mirror plate, surrounded by an inner ebonized molded frame. The outer frame is adorned with a twisted rope motif that is believed to be an evocation of Admiral Nelson’s recent victory at the 1805 Battle of Trafalgar. The golden hue of the outer frame contrasts beautifully with the dark tones of the inner molding. With its simple yet elegant lines and refined décor, this English convex mirror will bring a sense of history to any home, whether placed above a console table, commode or buffet.
