Sack catalogue description: Hepplewhite mahogany dressing mirror with pedimented top and pagoda crest, finely inlaid ovals with green backgrounds in crest and above center drawer, attributed to John Seymour. The crest is related in design to the three pedimented or pagoda-top tambours rather well documented as the work of John Seymour, illustrated in Stoneman, A Supplement to John and Thomas Seymour, pl. 70; the drawer interiors of ash with pine bottoms are found also in two of the pedimented desks.
