BACK TO ALL Mirrors

An Exceptional George III Irish carved Pine mirror, the Design Attributed to Francis and John Booker of Dublin

Surmounted by a triangular broken arch pediment centred by an urn above a dentil cornice and fluted frieze, the marginal plates within two bold tapering fluted columns with Corinthian capitals, the lower frieze with central leaf clasp, flanked by inbicrated corbels – Irish c.1775.
The reverse of the mirror bears a label for ‘H Kearney’, carver, gilder and looking glass maker to his majesty. The design of this mirror is identical to known autograph Booker mirrors, and one can assume┬áKearny was operating in this instance as a retailer.
