Fabulous Aesthetic Movement Brass Swivel Mirror --- a wonderful example of period Victorian design. It compares in style to a swivel mirror in "A Brass Menagerie--Metalwork of the Aesthetic Movement" by Anna Tobin D'Ambrosio--see page 70, pl. 52; also a sconce on page 73, pl. 57. It stands approximately 15" high, 9 3/4" wide across the twisted stretcher, and approximately 8" front to back [legs]. It is approximately 10" wide across the knobs. Original patina, mirror, back, and screws on the back. One screw just below the swivel has been replaced. The frame, including the beveled mirror, is approximately 6 3/8" x 12 1/2"; the mirror only, measured from the front is 5 1/8" x 7 1/4". It weighs over 6 1/2 pounds. "C.I. Hogan" is written twice on the back, "CIH", once--see photos. There is also a piece of tape with "_____Paid $3.00 for this mirror from old Vanderbilt House on So. Broadway W.P. [White Plains?, NY]"--see photos. The designs in the brass are very crisply detailed--this is a tour de force of American Aesthetic Movement design. I have had many sconces, frames, and mirrors from the Aesthetic Movement, but never a swivel mirror. Unmarked, but definitely high quality. Hard to find in this condition -- The best of The Machine Age. [The third photo shows a reflection of lines, NOT a crack, in the mirror!]
