Description & Technical information

Note: The frames have been re-gilded, and the mirror plates are mercury silvered replacements.
The silvering on the glass was already very deteriorated when the mirrors were photographed by Moss Harris in 1926 and it is likely that this deterioration was the reason for changing the mirror plates.
