A Set of Four Maple Queen Anne Chairs, Massachusetts, c.1770

These four chairs are not simply associated or related, but are in fact four from a set. They have chamfered rear legs which are a nice feature that these chairs don't always have, and a well-sculpted crook back form, which makes them quite comfortable. The front legs are beautifully sculpted, ending in pad feet, and all made stable through the robustly turned stretchers. Height: 40½ in.   Width: 20 in.

A Small Mahogany Shaving Mirror with Stenciled Label Chilton, Massachusetts, c.1820

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.

An Opulent Green Lacquer/Chinoiserie Mirror with Beveled Glass, China, 18th century

This mirror is clearly 18th century, including its original beveled glass.  The oxidation on the mirror is most pleasing, and has aged well.  The painting, figures, etc. are all original, with very minor touch up on some of the green, which is expected with age.  The form of the mirror, with its beautiful scrolling, is reminiscent of a European dutch style and probably made for the European market.  It is rare to come across these mirrors in such fine condition and one in this condition is...

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

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.
