This mirror is architectural in its statement with a pitched pediment Parthenon form and free-standing fully developed columns. The gable of the pediment top is developed with architectural corbels and balls. The center frieze depicts a reclining woman with a scythe in her hand, wheat to her left, and children to her right. The original glass is divided into three sections; a large center glass flanked by two smaller glasses, each of which is partitioned by a three-dimensional Ionic column.
