French Empire Cheval Mirror
France. Circa 1810.
In walnut with ebonized trim, this stately mirror has exquisite lines and exemplifies the design motifs of the period. Burl walnut surrounds the glass that has survived more or less intact through two centuries and shows only a small amount of deterioration here and there. Grecian design influence starts at the pediment top flanked by ebonized urns above Spartan relief carvings and continues down to the delicate legs with paw feet.
George II Giltwood and Gesso Mirror
United Kingdom. Circa 18th century.
George II giltwood and gesso mirror with beveled two glass parts within a lattice and flowerhead decorated border. Frame is decorated with flowerheads and scrolling acanthus and surmounted by a central female mask within a shell motif. A similar mirror can be seen page 79, fig. 57 of Graham Child's World Mirrors, 1650-1900. The central stylized shell or anthemion surmount above a female mask is particularly similar to this mirror.
England. Circa 1840.
Antique, Chippendale style mahogany drop front bureau with deep relief work and appliques. Finely figured mahogany on the case and doors of this piece sets it apart from the crowd. The desk interior is veneered in a particularly rich satinwood and the writing surface is an attractive, aged green, tooled leather.
Regency Mahogany Cheval Mirror
England. Circa 1820.
This English Regency cheval mirror with brass urn finials, handle and casters on a mahogany frame retains all its elegance and charm from the period. The original glass has lost much of its silvering, reflecting on its past as well as the present.
George III Parcel Gilt Mahogany Mirror
England. Circa 1800.
This handsome mirror most likely would have graced the home of someone of high social and economic standing as it has fine Rococo carving and a large piece of highly valued (and original) glass. Surrounded by carved acanthus leaves and a modified egg and dart moulding, the glass is in very good condition with only a few of the expected blemishes associated with a mirror of this age.
Mahogany Mirror with Molded Pediment
England. Circa 1900.
The mahogany frame with its curved pediment and large, carved urn has a gravitas about it that is augmented by its solid column sides. That—in conjunction with its original glass—makes this a substantial mirror that would look well with many styles anywhere from the early 19th century on up into the 20th century.
England. Circa 1870.
This solid English brass chandelier with six electrified arms has a visual weight to it that is augmented by its actual weight. Cast in solid brass, it offers the classic design elements associated with chandeliers, such as an urn shape in the post and large globe below. Each of the double curve arms terminates in a thick candle cup and two bobeches.
