An Extremely Rare George II Carved and Giltwood Pier Mirror Attributed to Benjamin Goodison

The mercury arched plate enclosed by a Prince of Wales feather centring a scroll cartouche above an egg and dart mounted re-entrant frame.

Comparable Goodison mirrors are mentioned in two publications:

In Georgian Cabinet Makers c.1700-1800 by Ralph Edwards it notes:
“Among the new furniture supplied by Goodison of the Prince of Wales apartments in 1732-2 were “three glass scones in carved and golt frames, with two wrought arms each, for the Prince of Wales’s Drawing room” (Plate 40).”

They are also mentioned in English Looking Glass by Geoffrey Willis:
“54. Of Carved and Gilt Wood; the mouldings divided by a sanded ground and low cresting centred on the coronet of the Prince of Wales with issuant feathers. Made for Frederick Louis, Prince of Wales (son of George II and father of George III), by Benjamin Goodison in 1732-3.”
