Description

When the Crofts moved into Kellynch Hall, they change very little about the estate, but they admit to Anne that Admiral Croft did remove several large looking classes from his dressing room. The mirrors are symbolic of the Elliot’s (especially Sir Walter’s) vanity and pride in their appearances. The act of removing the mirrors illustrates the practicality of the Crofts. Admiral Croft ops for just a small useful shaving mirror.
