    About this item

    A Regency giltwood convex wall mirror, by Thomas Fentham, circa 1815, bearing an applied
    fragmentary label for the maker THOMAS FENTHAM, NO 136 STRAND MANUFACTURER OF LOOKING GLASSES.

    Thomas Fentham was a carver, gilder, glass grinder and picture frame maker and occupied various addresses in The Strand between 1774-1825. It was a considerable concern with assets insured for £5400 in 1820. Through labelled examples of his mirrors, the name Fentham remains synonymous with handsome convex mirrors and architectural looking glasses. Payments to the firm are recorded amongst the papers at Erddig in Wales, where the gilt tables in the Gallery are thought to be almost certainly by Fentham as the decoration corresponds to that on a labelled picture frame in the Chinese Room. For comparable convex mirrors to that offered here see, C.Gilbert, Marked London Furniture, 1700-1840, Leeds 1996, pp.204-205
