SOLD

Antique Federal wall mirror or looking glass; circa early 19th century. Unsigned; measures about 32-5/8"h; 16-5/16"w at top; 13-3/8"w at center; 3-1/8"d at top sides.  Imperfect, antique, pre-owned, used condition - the glass is old with some flaking and imperfections (see bottom right corner for instance), and there is some scratching and loss to the reverse paint decoration (please see photos). Some dings/scratches to the wooden frame. The paper on the back is torn in some areas and the board behind the reverse painted glass a little loose. It looks there there were probably two decorative elements at the bottom on each side which were removed, and a couple areas carved out from the bottom of the frame, possibly to accommodate chair rail molding or similar - this is really only noticeable if you look at it from the bottom, where you can see the difference in oxidation of the wood.
