The bevelled mirror glass has been replaced and is cleverly mounted on a tilting mechanism so the angle can be changed without moving the frame and the wooden frame has been recovered in green velvet.

It gained popularity in the 15th and 16th centuries and has featured widely used in decorative design throughout subsequent centuries, reaching a peak of deep significance in 18th and 19th century decorative silverware and jewellery.
