Large Gilt Convex Mirror with Eagle

Large round decorative convex mirror from late 18th century period, also referred to as 'Butler's' or 'Fish Eye'mirrors. .

A resplendent and rare to find Large "Fish Eye" Mirror with American Eagle top.  The style comes from the American Federal Period (1785 to 1815) - a period of increasing wealth and ostentation in architecture and design.  .  

It is a really fun, eye catching piece of which opposing pairs can be made with facing eagles: ideal for a hall or either side of an entrance doorway.   

The convex glass will help to bounce natural light into the room and makes for a really dramatic piece of decoration.  

Slumping glass to form a fish eye has become a rare art in England and so having a convex mirror of this size is hard to find indeed.

Can be ordered with flat glass if preferred (£1,480)
