Bronze, glass, gilding
Overall: 21 x 14 1/2 x 6 1/2 in. ( 53.3 x 36.8 x 16.5 cm )
Oval dressing glass with gilded bronze frame and stand; frame is swivel-mounted between two full-length female figures (Jenny Lind) that stand upon the branches of a stylized tree with an American flag and a shield on either side of its triangular trunk; stand is screw-mounted to foliate base.
According to the accession records, this dressing glass came with a white marble base; however, it does not appear that the metal stand was designed to be permanently mounted to any surface.
