A stunning 18th century mahogany and gilt mirror, the frame with rosettes and beaded molding and over fluted, tapered "feet" flanking an apron with a garland swag. The mirror is topped with a tall cartouche with pierced and gilded carving along the edges, the carvings including birds, beads tassels and scrolls. The original plate is very slightly beveled. The back with a paper, handwritten label dated 17__ , the wording in English. Purchased at an estate sale in New England, we've designated this piece American, though it may be British.

In very good antique condition, with expected wear to the surfaces and oxidation to the mirror plate. Please refer to the photos, which are highly representative.
