Courting mirrors were typically given by suitors to their intended. This mid-18th century courting mirror is a fine example of New England rural craftsmanship. The original glass is in an early molded frame, mounted on a solid hand- carved and planed board. The crest is a skillfully carved shell design with a peak on each side. The back is heavily chamfered. Old rich and mellow surface. This piece is a notable representation of 18th century tradition and artistry.
Dimensions: mirror 4.25" x 5.75"; overall 6.75" x 11.25".
