Description An exquisite classical American mirror of extremely rare form and in a stunning state of original preservation. The mirror originates from the workshop of New York maker Isaac L. Platt who supplied pieces to the elite of the early United States. It is believed that Platt made fewer than ten forms of this girandole whose top is surmounted by a rockery and a goat, in place of the more typical deer. The foliate acanthus and laurel surround are of the highest quality as is the scrolled foliate apron. The reeded ebonized filet contains the original glass mirror with its mercury silver backing in good condition. The four arm candle arms retain their original brass gilt bobeche supports. On the whole, the piece is an extraordinary and possibly unique survivor of one of the best mirror manufacturers of Federal America. New York City, c. 1825. Provenance: Eastern Shore Virginia Estate
