This is a good sized mirror retaining its original gold leaf. The
carving is nothing less than virtuoso work. It is the best of its kind,
and though extremely well developed, does not clutter the composition.
Note the carved work at the top of the mirror that the eagle is
attached to; also note the spiral leafage around the flanking eaglets.
The flying eagle at center is the only one of its kind that we've seen,
and makes this mirror quite dramatic. It is a masterpiece and worthy
of the most discriminating collector or decorator that wants the best
and the most exceptional. It is a standout.
