Scroll down for 7 more photos

This is a fairly good sized mirror, 48 3/4" high, and came out of the famous Bigelow Collection of Boston and was part of the Elizabeth Daniel estate, Chapel Hill, North Carolina. It was handled by Israel Sack, New York.  This mirror has been magnificently regilted with an amazing amount of burnishing. Note the rope moldings, and how they reflect light off the back of the frame. The panel is one of the Grecian scenes that were done by Robert Welford and appears in a number of other federal panels.
This mirror is a true standout and brilliant as if made of pure gold.

Height: 48 3/4 in. Width: 23 in. Overall Width: 31 in.
