Regency Pair of Giltwood and Gesso English Overmantle Mirrors

About

A very attractive and rarely found pair of Regency period giltwood and gesso overmantle mirrors having Roman scenes to top panel over triple split bevelled mirror plates flanked by elegant carved columns (A good example in terms of design for overmantel mirrors incorporating Apollo on his chariot, which is something regularly depicted in these types of mirrors throughout the 19th century. These particular mirrors are Regency which is when they first began to use this design with the versions made throughout the following 80 years of so generally, but not always, of lesser quality and elegance. It is also incredibly rare to find a pair of these still together. You will often come across pairs that have been put together but that have variations in sizes, or slight design differences but these are identical in all ways. They would be absolutely perfect in the right setting and maybe they offer a solution that not many other items available out there do? They are both in good condition with the usual various pieces of historic damage in terms of scuffs, scrapes, chips, breaks etc but nothing at all of concern or that you would not expect to find on items that are 200 or so years old and they are most certainly ready to place straight into position.)
