Chippendale 18th Century Style Overmantel Mirror


A hand carved giltwood  Chippendale 18th Century Style Overmantel Mirror in the Chippendale style. Inspired by an 18th Century fireplace in the “Chippendale Director” a catalogue of more than 250 furniture designs produced by Thomas Chippendale’s workshops, first published in 1754.

Thomas Chippendale was a cabinet maker in London who designed furniture in the mid-Georgian, English Rococo and Neoclassical styles.  After his published book his designs became so influential that 'Chippendale' became a shorthand description for any furniture similar to his.

The Chippendale 18th Century Style Overmantel Mirror would be a magnificent statement piece for your home.
