Description: Monumental American Aesthetic Carved Cherrywood Mirror, late 19th c., labeled "Allen & Bro./Philadelphia", shingled crest, cove-molded frieze, rosette and reeded stiles, beveled mirrored panels above large mirror plate, h. 103 in., w. 58 in. Note: The Allen and Brother firm, founded in 1835 in Philadelphia, exhibited and won prizes at the 1876 Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. The design of this monumental mirror is related to pieces shown by other firms at the Centennial, including Mitchell and Rammelsberg of Cincinnati and Kimble and Cabus of New York City. The Centennial allowed these firms the opportunity to examine the work of their peers which influenced the design of later pieces. Ref.: Talbot. "Allen and Brother, Philadelphia Furniture Makers", Magazine Antiques, (May, 1996) pp. 716, pl. I, pp. 720-722, pl. VI-IX; Dubrow. American Furniture of the 19th c., p. 13.
