Sack catalogue description: Original catalogue description (May 1973) – Sheraton gilt mirror, baluster columns with acanthus capitals, the crest is centered by a triangular églomisé glass panel in gilt and white in carved border; the crest supporting a superbly sculptured eagle holding drapery chains which connect to elliptical beaded urns with flaming torches, standing on columns with ram's head terminals. American or English. Updated catalogue description (October 1974) – In brochure 23, we illustrated record P3764; recently we acquired its companion (record P4056) which, while not a mate, is patently by the same hand and which is for all practical purposes the same size. Thus, the mirrors will serve as a pair of a quality seldom rivaled; P4056 is illustrated in Nutting, Furniture Treasury, pl. 3032.
