Circa 1880, Victorian carved giltwood mirror by John Taylor of Edinburgh. The oval mirror has a beaded moulding all the way around and the outer section is concave and finishes with a flat edge. Towards the bottom there is open foliate carving and in the centre section is a solid block with a lattice pattern with flower heads. In the centre is a small leaf motif. The mirror has the original plate glass and gilding. On the pine back is the original trade label which states ‘From John Taylor & Son, Carvers Gilders & Frame Makers, Cabinet Makers Upholsterers & Decorators, 199 Princes Street, Edinburgh’. The frame also has the name John Taylor stamped into the wood on the left hand side of the frame and a registration or design number A8150. A well documented Edinburgh mirror.
