This mirror closely relates to several girandole mirrors made by Thomas Fentham of the Strand. Fentham, carver, gilder, glass grinder and picture-frame maker, occupied several addresses on the Strand between 1774 and 1825. His label appears on closely related convex mirrors illustrated in C.Gilbert, Pictorial Dictionary of Marked London Furniture: 1700-1840, Leeds, 1996, pp. 28 and 204-205, figs. 344-347. Another convex mirror by Fentham was sold by the Executors of the late Marquess of Abergavenny, K.G., O.B.E., Christie's London, 5 April 2001, lot 198 (£5,000).
