Exceptional Paint Decorated Early Traveler’s Looking Glass with Carved Shell.....SOLD
New England, possibly Connecticut River Valley, ca. 1720-1750. Original black and gold paint on a very thin (3/16 inch) hardwood (likely maple) frame, enclosing remarkably thin original mirror glass. The back covered with handwritten passages that includes the expression “Because history informs us that……” About 6 1/2 inches tall x 3 11/16 wide. The finest traveling looking glass that I have seen. Provenance: David Good, Steve Powers, private collection.
