A Fine Federal/Hepplewhite Mahogany Mirror with Flowered Urn Finial, probably New York, c.1780
This mirror, retaining its early glass, is in a fine state of preservation and is complete in all its parts. These mirrors are very delicate, and often lose their embellishments. The surface is old and has a rich, warm feel. The gold leafing is all original. It makes a very elegant and rich statement. There are a number of similar mirrors in the diplomatic reception rooms.
Height: 50 in. Width: 19 3/4 in. Depth: 1 3/4 in.
