So I thought thats interesting.. Top end items though not any old tat. I then looked at Al Johara... This is even more interesting but I couldn't find a company with that name, I can find people named Al Johara and it is not for me to connect any of them to this very IMPRESSIVE pier mirror but you may well know of someone of that name that once owned the mirror. It would certainly suit a house belonging to someone with that name and high status connections in Saudi Arabia.
Anyway the client Al Johara certainly had good taste there is no doubt about that and they clearly used the best shipper to have it moved and sent somewhere else. I have worked out the provenance of auctions too Dreweatts October 2019 and before that Christies London October 1993/4. It would suit a palace - chateau - grand country house as long as you had a large enough door and ceiling to get it into. It is 10 foot 2 inch tall overall x 5 foot 9 inch wide overall x 4 inch deep...The actual mirror is 105 inch tall x 55 inch wide. It has good strong steel plates with hooks on the top for attachment at the rear. It has a really fabulous design with the overhanging arched top which is in a shield sort of shape and central plain oval with the foliage leaf like design around it. With more leaves and flowers of 3 dimensional design sticking out coming down the sides.
Fancy headed columns at both sides. There is some gilt gesso losses on the design but it is in overall fantastic condition.If you have the right home for this it will look tremendous when its in situ. Ideal for the antique furnishers too or anyone into mirrors is going to love it.
I have the option for you to COLLECT the mirror from me.. Please do not be naive and send a "one man & a tranny van" outfit to collect it! Nothing else you see in the photograph is with it.
