Mr. Gosling’s Mirror? A George III Painted Papier Maché Mirror after a design by John Linnell


the oval plate surmounted by a husk-draped neoclassical vase

Height 102 cm (40 inches)
Width 55 cm (21.5 inches)
circa 1780

The design by Linnell for the present mirror is inscribed to both Mr. Gosling and to Wm. Mostyn-Owen Esq.. The Mostyn-Owen mirror survives, minus its cresting, at the family home, Woodhouse in Shropshire, so could this be the mirror made for Mr. Gosling?
