The elaborately turned frame with shaped acorn-type finials and united by twin turned lateral bars to the base and one to the top of the frame , providing strength and stability. The mahogany supports having a wide gentle sweep , again providing excellent stability.

The brass screw-in knobs on gilded brass plates and fitted with original turned mahogany ‘washers’ to grip the frame and allow precise and stable adjustment of the mirror angle .
The mirror frame having original mahogany multi-panelled back , unusually fitted with 3 original miniature brass rings to the top bar , which can be pulled up to release the back panel from the frame , perhaps providing a ‘secret’ compartment behind the plate.
