A Fine 18th Century Mirror attributed to John and Francis Booker - MR160
AN IRISH GEORGE II PIER MIRROR ATTRIBUTED TO FRANCIS AND JOHN BOOKER OF DUBLIN
This extraordinary architectural mirror belongs to a group of mirrors by the Booker family that all share similar strong influences of William Kent.
A drawing by Kent for an organ case, engraved by John Vardy, relates to the design of the mirror.
A mirror formerly at St. Giles House in Dorset, England, shares many similarities and is also attributable to Booker.
The pair to this mirror is in a private collection in Ireland.
Note: The mirror plates are mercury silvered replacements.
