Awesome Restored Figured Cherry Chippendale Mirror from the Historic "Stiegel-Coleman" Mansion Estate Auction held this past Sept. 28, 2013. The Hess Auctioneers & Mr. Coleman thought the wood was "Mahogany", however, I thought that it was cherry stained "Tiger Maple", but it has been verified to be highly Figured "Cherry Wood".

The First Stiegel Mansion was built by Wilhelm Von Stiegel, Pre-Revolutionary Ironmaster & Glass Visionary. Purchased from his wife Elizabeth's Father. Then the Coleman Mansion was built & attached to the first mansion by Robert Coleman and has been the home to their Family Dynasty of Iron Masters since 1776.

Letter of Provenance Lot # 156 is included, and Signed "William D. Coleman" and reads as follows : This item was taken from the Historic Stiegel-Coleman Mansion at 2121 Furnace Hills Pike Lititz, Pa. The estate, also known as Elizabeth Plantation. . The restoration consists of replacing the Simple "Top * Bottom Wood Arches" then finished with Cherry Stain to a close match. Magnificent Scroll Cutting is Original to the Frame with Nicely Hand Carved inner top Left & Right Corners. Receipt for Description of Repairs is also included.

(approx. 1 mile North of the Brickerville,Pa. village crossroads intersection of State Routes 501 & 322)

Outside Frame Measurements : 47 inches High by 23 1/4 inches Wide.

The Physical Mirror Glass is an old replacement Back Stamped 1922 on the back of the Glass itself.

As difficult as it is to date Mirror Frames, I believe this example dates between 1860 and 1876, due to the transitional use of Straight Hand Sawn boards and the combination of Circular Sawmill cut marks on the back boards. A Fabulous Centennial piece from a Historic Household !
