    Viscount St Cyres (1869-1926), son of the 2nd Earl of Iddesleigh, was married to Dorothy Morrison (d.1936), daughter of the great late Victorian businessman Alfred Morrison. They had no children and this mirror was presumably inherited by her great nephew Charles Morrison (1932-2005), Member of Parliament for Devizes from 1964 until 1992.
