An early 18th century Italian white painted mirror

the oval plate with a carved laurel leaf and bold acanthus surround. At some point scraped back to the original later of chalk paint, evidence of old ochre and green paint.

"I particularly love the simplicity and sculptural feel of the Baroque acanthus leaves on this mirror. The finish is also perfect."

Provenance: Most recently with the widow of John Pepys Cockerell who was a direct descendant of Samuel Pepys Cockerell (1753-1827), the architect of Sezincote House, Gloucestershire.

Probably housed at Holt Castle, Worcestershire with Felicia Pepys Cockerell between 1928-1947.
