Pier Mirror With Verre Eglomise Panel
This is a delightful American, 19th C. pier glass with robust, intricately carved wood frame and a lovely vere eglomise panel to the upper frieze. Beautifully carved wood frame has tenon and mortise construction, block corners, decorative relief carving and is grain painted. The contrasting ochre-colored grain painted bands are comb painted. The mirror also retains its original reverse painting of a charming country house and landscape scene, the fence in front of the house features pin-prick detailing. It retains its original glass and chamfered back, in super order. A really fine, original and appealing example.
