The neo-gothic frieze details on the upper frame also echo the designers of the later Georgian period, when these elements were made popular by Horace Walpole''s gothic villa at Strawberry Hill-hence the name of the movement-Strawberry gothic. A small, upright mirror of this type was conventionally used between windows above a small console table, rather than above a fireplace.
