This eighteenth-century looking glass, a family heirloom, was well over a century old when the Little family moved into the Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm in Newbury, Massachusetts. It was placed in its traditional position between two windows. When the family wallpapered their living room, they also papered the back of the looking glass, presumably to protect their new paper from its rough plank back. The reproduction wallpaper currently hung in the Living Room was made from the pieces on the back of the mirror.
Original to Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm (Newbury, Mass.),
50 x 23 1/2 (HxW) (inches)
Bequest of Amelia W. Little
