Item Description

An excellent quality 18th century carved giltwood armorial mirror, depicting a double headed eagle and coronet. Mirror plate replaced.

This emblem or armorial dates from the Byzantine period heraldry and vexillology. In the Byzantine Empire the eagle represented the power of the emperor, while its two heads represented the emperor's authority of secular and religious matters respectively, and or dominance over both the East and West. It should be noted that this emblem was also copied on both secular and religious items that had nothing to do with the royal courts.
