This is an excellent reproduction of
the formal New York Hepplewhite mirror form of the
early 19th century. It incorporates the urn with flowers
above swan neck pediments terminating in carved rosettes.
This is the full blown model with an inlaid shell
and an eglomise reverse painting. These models additionally
have leafage and Rosettes flanking the mirror all
of which make for an impressive statement. This mirror
was probably made turn of the century, and has some
good years behind it as the mahogany has developed
a warm glow over time. The original of this form is
many times the price of this and only the connoisseur,
upon inspection, can discern the difference, so when
mirrors of this quality are affordable, we handle
them, and have handled a number over the years.
