This cabinetmaker is reputed to have done case work for the Willard clock family. The case work is of extremely fine tolerances so that when one drawer is pushed in, another is pushed out due to the air compression. It should be noted also that these unusual pulls appear to be first. An almost identical dress glass appears in Wallace Nuttings’ Furniture Treasury , illustration 3216. Height: 25 1/2 in. Width: 21 in. Depth: 7 3/4 in.

It is rare to come across these mirrors in such fine condition and one in this condition is...

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. Height: 53"

Referenced: Yale University Art Gallery Rhode Island Furniture Archive # RIF5455 This piece came out of the Joseph “Darby” K. Ott collection, which was very highly regarded.
