Chippendale-style Mahogany Inlaid Scroll-frame Mirror — 19th C.

Updated January 25 at 9:30 pm Eastern: This item has been sold.


A beautiful, distinctive addition to any room, solid Mahogany with fine craftsmanship and historic style. Leave the original mirror that's very much showing its age, or easily replace it for a bright look that's also functional.

Many variations of this "Chippendale" style mirror were made. Some were fancier than this, with gold ornamentation, and others more plain, with no inlay or other carving. (Reproductions are also made today.)

I chose this one because of the inlay around the permitter and the lovely inlay at the top, showing a plant in a vase on a small shelf. Inlay takes considerable skill. To create the sense of dimension, the edges are darkened by placing them in sand that's been heated.

Unlike many mirrors of this age and style, this is as it was originally made. No pieces of the frame are missing and none have been broken and re-attached.   

The mirror itself, however, does have the same thing that is common to nearly every old mirror: A loss of silvering on the back. It's very easy to replace the old mirror with a new one, and we've included a digital mock up to give you an idea of what that would look like.

    Timing

    We try to ship orders within three business days of receiving them. This applies to in-stock items. Framed items or items requiring personalization may take up to two weeks longer. If there is an extended delay, it will be noted on the product page.

    We close for a week over Independence Day and Christmas. A notice will appear at the top of every page of the site in advance of this closure.

    We ship most orders via USPS, so if the post office is closed, we won't be shipping orders that day.

    If you need to receive your order by a certain date, such as to give as a gift or have for a trip, we recommend ordering at least two weeks in advance, especially if you are using USPS shipping. 

    If you're looking for reliable, on-time deliveries, we strongly suggest upgrading to "UPS 3 Business Day Select Shipping."

    Additional notes:

    • When fulfillment takes longer, such as around the Christmas holidays, we'll put up an announcement in the site and will list recommended shipping deadlines below.
    • If an item is out of stock, we will contact you.
    • If one of your items is an advance order, that will be noted on the product page along with an estimate of when it will ship. If that estimated date changes, the product page will be updated.
