Description

The oval frame with floral carving and scrolling leaves enclosing the original mercury glass plate.England, circa 1760sProvenance: Once the property of Nicholas Argenti (1896 - 1961). The mirror bears a 1935 inventory sticker to the reverse. Nicholas Argenti was a stockbroker in London and served in the First World War as a Captain in the British Army, and the Second World War as a Squadron Leader in the RAF. He was also a highly regarded philatelist who in 1962 was posthumously awarded the Crawford Medal by the Royal Philatelic Society London for his work 'The postage stamps of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia', published after his death. The book had been intended to include postal history matters but that part had not been completed by the time Argenti died, and the Royal society decided to publish the parts it had in hand. He had been elected to the society in 1936.
