The flamboyant Queen Anne gilded looking glass demonstrates late Baroque, English styling from around 1720-40. Found in Wetherburn's Tavern at Colonial Williamsburg, the raised head of a woman, the gessoed repouss decoration and crests with rosettes serve as a testament to the carver's skill. Looking glasses with sconce arms holding candles were used as a way to amplify reflected light in times before electricity. The mirror measures 25"W X 50"H. The production time for this mirror is approximately 6-8 weeks. Please note this item is custom made to order and may not be returned. Please review our return policy on custom made to order items.
