- Reviews (0)
American empire circa 1850-60 NY made vanity/petticoat mirror. Last one of these I seen I actually sold about eight years ago at auction for 4500$. Never seen another since. This one I’ve had a good while but time to move on to the next stop. It’s been restored to a brilliant condition And is very clean. A unique model in every way with its petticoat mirrored bottom supporting a marble top and then a harp holding another vanity mirror above. It’s very early and would venture to say could be even before 1850. Crotch mahogany everywhere Makes it really pop. Look at the escutcheon made of abalone. The mirror is supported by dowels that do into the back board and a single threaded bolt from the underside snugs it down. Great design, great detail and a rich history. We are very sure this was manufactured by the JW Meeks company of Ny. A true rare museum type American made piece her for sale on the open market. Measures: 64″tall, 40″wide, 20″ deep. Height to top of marble is 30″.
