Mirror in blond tortoise shells - England - early 18th century

This elegant mirror was made in England around 1710. Its shape with different curves on the upper part, characteristic of artistic production during the reign of Queen Anne Stuart, allows us to determine its period of production. The frame is veneered with blond tortoiseshells, and since its creation, it has had a beautiful bevelled mercury mirror as a view. Tortoiseshell, a particularly rare material, was highly prized from the Grand Siècle, when it became a noble and exceptional material.

A piece of great quality but also of great rarity, it perfectly testifies to the eclecticism of the decorative arts at the beginning of the 18th century.
