A Very Fine Federal Giltwood and Eglomise Paneled Looking Glass, New York, c.1810

Scroll down for 6 more photos

This is one of the finest examples extant of the form.  It has the most desirable eagle in its original eglomise panel (all glass/mirror is original).  Note, above the central reverse painting, the lyre flanked by wheat stalks in carved urns.  This is the only example we know of which has a lyre as its top finial.  It doesn't get better.  This is probably the finest example with no repairs or alterations whatsoever in the world of federal mirrors.
