These pier-glasses are inspired by the two supplied by John Belchier (d.1753), working at the 'Sun' at St. Paul's Churchyard, to John Meller in 1723 and 1726 for the two best bedchambers at Erddig Park, Denbighshire, Wales (now in the Saloon) at a cost of £36 and £50 respectively (one illustrated in R. Edwards and M. Jourdain, Georgian Cabinet-Makers, rev. edn., London, 1955, p.137, fig. 36 and incorrectly attributed to Moore and Gumley). A detail from a similar mirror illustrated in L.Synge, Mallett's Great English Furniture, (London, 1991, p.89) shows the same boldly scrolled frame, paired eagle heads and a related winged putto head. Another similar with broadly curvaceous outline is illustrated in G.Child, World Mirrors 1650-1900, London, 1990, p.78, fig.51.
