Rectangular mirror, English, unknown maker, early nineteenth century, gilt wood and mirror glass

Height: 65.5cm
Width: 17.3cm

Museum number: XF362

Curatorial note

In a narrow gilt frame. One of a pair with XF354, with original iron fixing plates on the back to enable it to be hung vertically.

It is not known where these two mirrors, which have identical dimensions and identical fixings on the back, originally hung. It is possible that they were on the west wall of the ground floor Ante Room as seen in J. M. Gandy’s view of 1825 (Vol. 82, 119), but they appear slightly too small; or that they were in the Study. If so they would have been removed by Wild when he altered the door jambs between the Study and Dining Room in 1890-91.
