Ransom Mirror

Paul Tucker, an expert on Moorish Fretwork furniture, was kind enough to send some concrete evidence that the mirror posted previously is not a Hunzinger piece at all, but one constructed by a furniture maker named: Moses Younglove Ransom. He made some magnificent pieces with those turned wood spindles... many in the exact same pattern as the mirror.

Thanks Paul for the correction!
