A pair of George III carved giltwood oval mirrors formed by two flower-entwined foliate branches topped by an upright stem with bow, attributed to William and John Linnell. The original gilding refreshed.

This pair of mirrors are closely related to a drawing in the Victoria and Albert Museum for a pier glass designed by John Linnell (illustrated in H. Hayward & P. Kirkham, William and John Linnell, p. 115, fig. 220.) There is also a pier glass based on the same design at Uppark, West Sussex, as well as a white-painted pier mirror supplied to Brownlow, 9th Earl of Exeter for Burghley House, Lincolnshire, for whom Linnell had worked. Provenance: The Bowes Family, Gibside, Durham. Literature: H. Hayward and P. Kirkham, William and John Linnell, vol. II, London, 1980, p. 115, fig. 220.)
