This stately mirror is one of the finer examples that would have been offered in England during the Colonial period. They were imported to America and adorned some of the wealthiest homes and institutions in the mid-18th century through the early 19th century. The graceful yet boldly scrolled arch pediment surmounted with a carved spread-wing eagle is well proportioned and executed with finely carved details such as the incised gesso and wood decoration along the moldings. The looking glass is surrounded by a mahogany veneered frame with a carved gilt beveled liner outlined with an applied, carved giltwood and gesso molded edge conforming to the frame. The looking glass is flanked by carved foliage.
