A pair of mid 18th century rococo giltwood pier glasses, the frames extravagantly carved with stylised leaves, fruit and flowers entwined amongst interlocking 's' and 'c' scrolls on a pierced rocaille ground. The original mirror plates retaining their original backing panels and wool cushioning.These looking glasses are in remarkable original state with very little loss to the elaborate carved frames. The plates themselves were packed out behind by strips of bound wool to help prevent any movement between the fragile glass and the back supports. The distressing of the plates is due in part to the wool binding which possibly should have been removed when they were hung in the house in 1750.Provenance: Llanharon House, Glamorgan, Wales.Llanharan House was built around 1750 by Rees Powell and later occupied by Richard Jenkins and the Blandy-Jenkins family. Its most distinguished visitor was King George II of Greece in 1923. Squire Jenkins, who bought the house in 1806, made Llanharan a focus for hunting in South Wales buying 21 kennels of hounds.
