Beautiful Federal Mirror with Reverse Painting of Mount Vernon

Up for your consideration is this really beautiful federal mirror with a reverse painting of Mount Vernon on the top section.  I do not know the age of this piece.  It looks to have age...it has wear on the gold in some areas, primarily wear on the upper sides of the ribbed columns on the bottom and on the right side....there is also just a little chip on the lower, right square corner and paint chip at the left side where the flat piece separates the upper and lower areas.... all are pictured.  With that aside, this is a great piece...the size is 12" X 24"...a great size!  It is painted gold, the original reverse painting at the top is of George Washington's Mount Vernon....lovely colors and in very good condition.  I did remove it and inspected the piece and it looks good.  The painting has a piece of crinkled paper covering it (attached lightly) and then there is a piece of thick cardboard to protect it.  I feel the actual mirror portion is not original but I did not remove it to check...the back probably had a more complete look but the paper backing has been removed...little paper remains.  There are a few screws inserted on the back ..probably to secure the columns ...not sure if this is original or later addition.  There are nicely detailed medallions on each corner, placed on the square pieces.  Absolutely wonderful mirror and painting!  Sold As Is.  I will combine shipping!  Please ask questions if you have concerns about the information I am giving...I am always open to hearing from people who can educate me further. Thank you for looking! 

I am selling all my items AS IS.  Please make sure to ask questions before bidding if you are not comfortable bidding on an AS IS item.    Thank you for looking!
