A Fine Marquetry Inlaid Mirror
Probably designed by Owen Jones
Attributed to Jackson & Graham

A stunning mirror, beautifully made, with a striking design consisting of many precious specimen materials and rare woods. The mirrored plate with gilt moulding and a rectangular frame having everted corners and domed to the top and bottom; inlaid with geometric floral patterns throughout on a palmwood ground, interspersed with fields of thuya, all accentuated with stringing and crossbanding; and an oval cartouche bearing the monogram "R.R." at the apex.
English, circa 1865

Presumably for Richard Redgrave's Hyde Park Gate

Richard Redgrave, an influential figure in the London art scene, knew Owen Jones and worked with him on purchasing items from the 1851 Exhibition. Redgrave's home and studio were designed by himself and located at Hyde Park Gate, later known as the last residence of Sir Winston Churchill. The mirror's formal characteristics are associated with the firm of Jackson & Graham, who also produced furniture designed by Owen Jones. Redgrave was a client of the firm and bought a carpet from them for the Museum of Ornamental Art. Redgrave, Jones, and Cole were referred to as the "Triumvirate of Taste."
