Nb. Usually conceived as pairs, these mirrors ​often had candle sconces issuing from their bases, the light being reflected in the mirror plates. In this form they are referred to as girandoles. Often pairs became separated but they are of greater rarity and value if found in pairs, or even in sets of four.
