George III Chippendale Palm Mirror

   Click to enlarge

A carved gilt-wood looking glass based on designs by John Linnell. The frame formed of two ribbon-tied, crossed branches of palms, punctuated by carved flower-head paterae.

John Linnell (1729-1796) was one of the most accomplished and highly fashion conscious furniture and cabinet makers of his time who built up a large and prosperous business in Berkeley Square, London. A workshop design by Linnell, dated 1773, now in the Victoria and Albert Museum, shows a more complicated mirror design that relies on an inner frame of crossed boughs, identical to this example. Another, dated 1774, shows the crossed boughs forming the outer frame. Illustrated by Helena Hayward and Pat Kirkham, William and John Linnell, Eighteenth Century London Furniture Makers, London, 1980. Pages 101 and 102.
