Justice Mirror
Adapted from a rare Victorian silver picture frame - probably European in origin. Justice - who surmounts the frame - is chief of the four cardinal virtues - the others being Prudence - Fortitude - and Temperance. Her sword represents her power - the scales ( a refinement dating from the Roman era) her impartiality. The dove at the bottom represents the relationship defined in Psalm 85 ( verse 10) "Justice and Peace join hands." The figure of Justice is commonly seen on buildings wherever the law is administered. 8 inches high. European Ca. 1880.

TRIPLE CROSS (N29)
A traditional piece from Byzantine and Russian sources. The Church Slavonic script reads from the top and left to right as follows: "King of Glory," "INRI (Jesus Nazarene King of Judea)," "Son of God," "Jesus Christ," "Your Cross we adore O Lord/Master." At his feet are the words "To Conquer." At his left side are a Holy Apostle and a converted Roman soldier. At his right side are St. Mary and St. Martha. Below his feet is the skull of Adam in keeping with the legend that the Cross would be erected over Adam's grave. At the very top are the figures of God and the Archangels Gabriel and Michael. This piece was reproduced from the original, which was cast in gold. Byzantine. 8 1/2" high x 5" wide.
Price: 45.00
IRISH CROSS (N41)
During the 8th century, most of the large Irish monasteries began decorating their courtyards with enormous stone crosses carved on four sides and densely laden with Biblical scenes. Thirty or more of these crosses survive. Recarved in miniature from photographs. Irish circa 8th century 9 7/8 inches high x 6 1/8 wide
Price: 45.00
Small Edwardian Mirror
Reproduced from a gutta-percha picture frame of neo-classical design - this piece probably dates from the late Victorian or Edwardian period. 5" high. American ca. 1900
Price: 35.00



Round Cherub Mirror
Reproduced from an advertising premium distributed by the American Mail Chute Company to promote the delicate bronzework incorporated into its products. The cherub and dolfin tracery utilizes classical motifs popular at the turn of the century. Many fine examples of this company's work are still in use today. Antique gold finish. 5 1/4" diameter. American Late 19th century
Price: 35.00
Garland Mirror
This mirror - with its garlands of flowers - cherubic supporters and extravagant foliage - suggests a baroque or rococo origin. The piece is - however - reproduced from a copper picture frame dating from about the beginning of the 20th century. 8 1/4" high. American Ca. 1900
Price: 45.00
Cameo Mirror
This mirror - with its finely detailed grape clusters - festoons of flowers and elegant cameo - was reproduced from a gutta-percha picture frame. Classical details are combined with Victorian exuberance to highlight the central beaded mirror border. 10" high. American Late 19th century
Price: 50.00



Victory Tablet of King Nar-Mer
The original from which this piece was re-interpreted - an ancient Egyptian relief of the beginning of the Early Dynastic Period (ca. 3200 BC) - was found at Hierakonopolis - near Idfu - and is now in the Cairo Museum. At the top are heads of the goddess Hathor with ears and horns of a cow - as well as the king's name - expressed by hieroglyphs for sheath-fish and chisel. Nar-Mer - wearing the crown of upper Egypt - strikes down an enemy held by the hair. Behind him is the sandal-bearer with his master's salve box and sandals. Above the kneeling victim - the king - in the shape of a falcon god - is holding by the lip the head of a captive rising out of the hieroglyph meaning "land." The six plants nearby symbolize six thousand captives. Below are two naked fallen enemies with the names of districts or tribes. 15 3/4" high. ca. 3200 BC
Price: 65.00
Celtic Tree of Life Mirror
The design from which this mirror is taken comes from a "Potted Tree of Life" border in the Book of Kells. Called - in the Annals of Ulster - "the great Gospel of Columkille - the chief relic of the western world," the Book of kells is unrivaled for its wealth of decorartive detail. While its exact origin is unknown - it may have been produced in Iona in the late 8th century. The tree of life symbol is found in the art of many ethnic groups and is common on the great Pictish stones of East Scotland. 10 1/4" high. Celtic ca. late 8th century
Price: 75.00
Altarfront of the Lombard King - Ratchis
During the Visigothic period in Spain - moveable decorative elements such as chancels - pillars and altar supports vied with rich architectural elements such as friezes - cornices - imposts and capitals. This re-carved example clearly belongs half-waybetween the great decorations of Late Antiquity and those which were to culminate in Romanesque art in subsequent centuries. Sculpture of this period was characterized by a constricting rigidity of the frame - the flattened form of relief - the exaggerated proportions of the figures and the simultaneous frontal and profiled representation of the bodies. The original is located in the Church of San Martino - Cividale del Friuli - Venetia. 14 1/4" wide. Italian ca. 825 - 850

Grapevine Mirror
This vigorously carved frame - reproduced from a wooden original - symmetrically arrays a beautifully detailed grapevine around its border. It is reminescent of the work of William Morris - one of the founders of the Arts and Crafts movement in 19th century England - which borrowed and reinterpreted medieval and renaissance forms. The outer border of the frame is established by the botanical motif - overlaying a traditional picture frame created from multiple tiers of moldings. The latter determines both the underlying contour of the frame and its inner border. 10 1/2" high. English 19th century
Price: 75.00
Cameo and Cherub Mirror
This mirror - with its many finely detailed architectural elements and cornucopia-bearing cherubs waiting in attendance upon the serene figure of a woman presented in elegant cameo - was reproduced from a gutta-percha picture frame. The rounded-corner shape of the cross-hatch bordered mirror is unusual in this genre. 10 3/4 " high. English Late 19th century
Price: 75.00
Calmady Children
The painting of Emily and Laura Calmady by noted British portraitist Sir thomas Lawrence (1769-1830) on which this bas relief was based dates from 1824. The original painting hangs in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. 7 1/4" diameter. 19th century
Price: 45.00



Art Nouveau Angel Mirror
Reproduced from a bronze picture frame of European - probably French - origin dating from the end of the 19th century - this mirror comes from a period of transition from neo-classical to art nouveau in decorative arts - the relative severity of the architectural elements contrasting happily with the fluidity of the angels' robes. 8 1/2" high. French late 19th century
Price: 75.00
Empire Mirror with Mermaids
This mirror was adapted from an Empire period bronze thermometer - almost certainly of French origin. The design elements relate to sun and water - and - thus - to temperature. Mermaids were the descendants of Neptune and Amphitrite - a sea nymph: their use in neo-classical ornamentation is widespread. The sun face at the top is reminiscent of the emblem of Louis XIV of France - the "Sun King," who embellished his "converted hunting lodge," Versailles - with this image. 7 1/4" high. French ca. 1820
Price: 50.00
Angel with Flowers
A fine example of the work of Joseph Lamson and of the early use of a winged head effigy replacing the traditional death's head. Mary Cutler - for whom this stone was cut - was the daughter of Anna Cutler - about whom Cotton mather wrote in the "Magnalia" that she died in Boston the same day and hour that her son - Robert - died in Barbados. 14" long. Charlestown - Massachusetts 1703
Price: 45.00



John Jack
This stone was set in 1830 to replace the damaged original - composed in Latin and erected by the Tory sympathizer - Daniel Bliss. The stone expresses the irony of the struggle for freedom from England by a Colony that recognized the right of one man to enslave another. At his death a respected landowner of Concord - John Jack has been immortalized by these now-famous lines. 6 1/4" high. Concord - Massachusetts 1773

Lydia Dyar
It is unusual to find a woman's stone that comments on her own actions rather than on her role as adjunct to or "relict" of her husband. The historically-significant epitaph came into use at a time when the artistic side of stonecutting had become static and formula-ridden. Even the summation couplet is one of a handful used repeatedly by stonecutters of the period. 6 1/4" high. Billerica - Massachusetts 1776
Price: 25.00

Scarab Mirror
Reproduced from a bronze original - this piece is representative of the Egyptian revival in decorative arts of the Empire period in France. Napoleon's invasion of Egypt in 1798 - led to an awareness of the ancient art of that land - the motifs of which were incorporated into the furniture and decorative arts of France. 6 3/4 " dia. French Ca. mid- 19th century
Price: 45.00



Large Dragon Mirror
The Dragon exists in the mythology of every people. In the Chinese culture - however - it was revered as King (Lung Wang) or god. Dragons were reputed to carry in their throats a pearl of great worth and to live in magnificent underwater palaces from which they could ionfluence the climate for good or evil. They were believed capable of changing their form at will. In ancient China - intimate knowledge of Dragons was considered indispensible to survival. 10" high. Chinese ca. early 20th century
Price: 85.00
Angel
This fine stone was one of many cut by Nathaniel and Caleb Lamson - using a distinctive striped slate - the banding of which can be seen running vertically through this reproduction. The elegance and charm of the angel - in imitation of contemporary European models - and the use of the fig motif - denoting prosperity - are typical of their work. 14" long. Cambridge - Massachusetts 1752
Price: 50.00
Father Time
This stone is of particular interest as it appears to have been borrowed for John Tawley and his brother Thomas from its original owner. By comparing it to a remarkably similar one in Salem - dated 1698 - and observing that the inscription on this stone seems to be sunken and perhaps recut - noted authority Harriet Forbes concluded that the stone was appropriated for the Tawleys. It is the work of the great "Stonecutter of Boston," and depicts Father Time with his scythe and hourglass symbolizing the flight of time. 15" high. Marblehead - Massachusetts c. 1698, recut 1746

The Dancers
A Victorian Box by Facsimilies Ltd. The top of this box is a cast reproduction of a union case that was made between about 1853 and 1870. The development of the first thermoplastics from heated compounds including sawdust and shellac led to a brief boom in union cases for the display of daguerreotypes. When less fragile photographic forms appeared in the 1860's, the demand for Union Cases faded away as rapidly as it had been created. The box top is cast in Hydrocal (a strong gypsum cement) using a rubber mold made from the original case. Finished with a translucent wax overcoat, formulated to give the box top the appearance of ivory. The box is hand-crafted from various hardwoods. Only one in stock! 5 inches long by 4 1/16 wide and 2 3/8 inches high.

Dragon
This relief has been reproduced from an elaborate carving in the library of Chateau Sur-Mer, the first of the great villas on Bellevue Avenue. Initial construction of this home, built for William Shepard Wetmore, who made his fortune in the China trade, was completed in 1871. The carving forms part of the library's Circassian walnut wall paneling carved by Luigi Frullini (1839-1897) in Florence for the 1876 redecoration of the Wetmore "Castle on the Sea". Italian 1876 - 12 1/4 inches high X 10 wide X 1 inch deep
