EARLY FEDERAL PERIOD GILT MIRROR WITH DESIRABLE EAGLE REVERSE PAINTED GLASS MADE IN NEW ENGLAND CIRCA 1800-15



Here is a desirable mirror because it retains its original reverse painted glass panel of an American eagle.  In addition it retains its original gilt surface with no touch-ups and a minimum of tiny losses.  The hanging balls and carved twisted column elements are also the originals.  The original backboard has a label in the upper right corner showing that it had been in the collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.  The mirror was made in New England, probably in Massachusetts, in the early years of the 19th century.
