Boston Neo-classical “Composition Work” Mirror

No. RD14168

Wonderful Boston Neo-classical “composition work” mirror.  Possibly by John Doggett.

This mirror has the identical scene as the one in “American Furniture  - The Federal Period” in The Henry Francis du Pont Winterthur Museum by Charles F. Montgomery ( page 281 Plate 242).

Both figures in the tablet are inspired by popular portraits done by Adam Buck,  an Irish neo-classical portraitist and miniature painter principally active in London.
