Unique Red White and Blue Carved Looking Glass.....SALE PENDING
Northeast, ca. last quarter, 19th century, likely inspired by the celebration of the first 100 years of America. Believed to have been made by a sailor, it is carved from one piece of wood in a voluptuous manner, with a marked three-dimensional presence representing a rope-twist. In a high state of originality with strong patina. Provenance: Purchased from Grace and Elliott Snyder by Dinah and Stephen Lefkowitz, of New York City and Old Saybrook, Connecticut. See the article about their remarkable collection in Spring, 2007 Magazine of Antiques and Fine Arts by Johanna McBrien, this looking glass being the lead pictured object and a favorite of Dinah (and now a favorite of mine). About 12 inches tall x 10 wide. .
