Antique Civil War Period, American Eagle & Shield Crossed Cannon, Mirror.. The American Eagle at the top of this Civil War Period Mirror and the bottom American Shield with Fruit & Vines on either end are made from Gesso Plaster.
That goes for the Crossed Cannon & Cannon Balls as well as the Stars. Because these frames are so fragile, examples are very rare.
Measuring 16" tall, including the 5 ½" wide Eagle, by 12 ½ wide this frame retains its original Gold Gilded surface. One of the wings may have been repaired, but I actually think these fine lines you see are old like on a frame. I don't think any piece has been separated and reattached and this Eagle is in strong condition.Even the thin 7 ½" by 9 ½" oval mirror is original. This gilded fame is a fresh pick and the surface is untouched. We are listing this circa-1860s, Civil War Period Frame without any reserve.
