About this piece

Sweden, circa 1720. Probably by Gustav Precht (1698 - 1763)

The frame of crimson glass with gilt-lead & giltwood mounts retaining the original rectangular plate, the shaped upper plate almost certainly replaced. The gilt mounts possibly replaced.

The use of shaped border-glass to outline the main mirror plates and gilt-lead mounts are prominent characteristics of this maker while the distinctive flower-filled baskets are a particular feature of Gustav Precht, whose work is often difficult to tell apart from his father Burchard Precht.
