While the oval shape of this looking glass hints at the Neoclassical style, introduced into the United States by 1790, the frame, featuring a phoenix-like finial, pierced openwork, and carved-and-gilded S-scrolls, indicates the retention of the Rococo aesthetic that was popular prior to the American Revolution.
