This is a stunning, signed, hand-carved framed mirror dated 1987. The artisans at the company, Rain Tree Carvings out of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, are – according to their Facebook page – very active in the craft of wood carving, and present workshops on their favorite topic as the opportunities present themselves.
This piece is just beautiful, and like their other work, is one of a kind – simply by virtue of having been hand made. In fact, I’ve only been able to find another like it on-line – and that one was created 3 years earlier in 1984. (That one is for sale on eBay for $175.00.)
The piece is signed and dated on the back, as you can see from the photos. (Please excuse the reflections in the mirror; clearly I should have made certain there was nothing on the opposing wall to detract from the beauty of the piece.)
Condition: Very good. There is a section of the swan’s tail that’s been damaged, and is reflected in the price reduction (from $94 to $70). It’s not noticeable unless you’re looking for it; I didn’t see it at first.
Dimensions: 27″ high x 17″ wide by 2 1/2″ deep
Price: $70.00. Plus 5.5% Maine State Sales Tax of $5.17, for a total of $99.17.
Unless we’re having a sale, which would be listed here, our prices are firm.
Shipping & Delivery: Free local pickup. We can deliver within Lewiston-Auburn for a $15.00 delivery fee, or Gray/Portland (along the 202 Route, or just off it) early Wednesday mornings for the same $15.00. Because of a recent shipping disaster, we are wary of trying again with an item as potentially fragile as this (it is a mirror, after all), but will do so for a $30 shipping fee.
