An early 20th century beaten & patinated copper mirror frame with polychrome enamel decoration and applied bosses.

English, circa 1900 - 1910

This frame is both beautifully conceived and manufactured, suggesting the work of multiple hands. The overall design is both restrained and impactful, the quality of beating and chasing is highly competent & the enamel work brings all the skills together in its execution.

The stylised WW motif at the corners ought to suggest a specific commission but sadly this has been lost over the century.
