BALTIC NEOCLASSICAL CARVED MAHOGANY PIER MIRROR
Circa mid 19th century
Item # 703QNS20P 


This gorgeous pier mirror is finished in excellent selections of crotch-mahogany veneers, particularly in the upper panel where the recessed center shows the same carved ball-and-ring molding that frames the mirrored glass.  The cove molded body raises a powerful projecting pediment with four symmetrical carved acanthus rosettes in a raised arch.  The reverse of the mirror shows a thoughtful approach to the craft, perfect symmetry in the pine secondary woods that bring the form together; it retains a beautiful old brown oxidized unfinished surface with all original blocking.  The mirror can be mounted with the current modern tabs, a wire can be added or a different form of bracket can easily be added.

A powerful piece of architecture in fine condition, this is a most interesting strikepoint piece for the Neoclassical interior.

Measurements:  26 1/8” W x 57 1/2” H x 4 1/4” D

Condition Report:
Old repaired cracks in rosettes.  Replaced mirrored glass.  Small pine strip added to top behind crest for strength and balance.  Old refinish, minor chips, veneer patches and losses as expected.
