Bradley Manor, Devon
Whose mirror was this? Sometimes the history of an object is uncertain and we cannot always verify it. What do you think? Did Percy Bysshe Shelley, one of the most prominent English Romantic poets, take a look through this looking glass?
Wall mirror in carved giltwood and walnut frame. Possibly belonged to Shelley. Poor condition.
Accepted by HM Government in lieu of inheritance tax and allocated to the National Trust for display at Bradley Manor, 2002.
