Description & Technical information

Note: The mirrors retain the original silvered brass candle arms and one of the original mirror plates. One mirror plate is an 18th century replacement.
It is extremely rare to find single candle arms attached to the frame, which is of unusually small scale in this example.  Most Irish oval mirrors of this type are considerably larger in scale and either have a suspended half chandelier in front of the mirror or are left without lighting.
