Frame: carved, polished, gessoed, gilded; glass panels: cast, rolled, polished, painted, silvered. The rectangular plate glass mirror is set in an ornate, carved, gessoed and gilded wood framework. The frame surrounding the looking glass is decorated with narrow mirror panels, which are painted on the reverse with detailed, polychrome garlands. Surmounting the mirror is an elaborately carved pediment, consisting of symmetrical scrollwork embellished with acanthus leaves and a pair of flower vases. The central glass panel fitted into this pediment is decorated with a baroque cartouche of a jester dancing under a canopy. This panel is flanked by two others painted with cornucopias; the one above depicts a bird surrounded by floral sprays and holding a berry in its beak. The flanking panels below show a pair of putti holding flower baskets and floral sprays.
