American Federal Mirror, New York, about 1800
Purchased from Sam Herrup.
Perhaps the most desireable of American mirrors are these with painted and gilded reverse painted panels, urns holding wheat ears and posies, leaves and flowers strung on wires down either side, and inlays. It is likely from New York City, possibly from Albany. A very similar one is at Winterthur, #214 in Montgomery's book.
