This elegant mirror is similar to an example attributed to Burchard Precht formerly in The Wrightsman Collection and illustrated in F.J.B. Watson, The Wrightsman Collection, volume II, New York, 1966, no. 209, pl. 39.The Precht family is synonymous with the production of mirrors of the highest quality in 18th century Sweden, numerous examples having been attributed to Burchard or to his sons Gustav (d. 1763) and Christian (d. 1779). Burchard arrived in Stockholm in 1674 to work at Drottingholm Palace before being appointed carver to the court in 1682, further to the recommendation of the royal architect, Nicodemus Tessin the Younger. Precht became extremely influential in the development and enrichment of the Swedish baroque style. A closely related mirror was sold at Christie's London, 28 September 2010, lot 573 (£25,000).
