Unusual Vintage Folk Art Carved Cherry Mirror

Rarely do we find mirrors with as finely carved frames as this. Both rails and stiles are carved in a repeating pattern nicely stopped at each end. The four corner pieces were carved separately with four petal flowers over circles.

The frame is joined at the corners by half-lap joints then the four corner pieces were applied, suggesting the entire piece was made by an accomplished carver rather then a cabinetmaker.

The choice of cherry as the primary wood, with a natural finish, gives the piece great color. The surface looks original but the glass has been replaced.

At 15" x 17 1/2" this mirror is a great size for a small bathroom or over a dresser or commode in a period bedroom. The size, color and carving gives it an "Arts and Crafts" look. We would date this piece from the late 19th century to the early 20th century.
