Illions Tribute Mirror

Spirited Steeds Studio Illions Supreme Mirror reproductionGreat for your Coney Island Mancave!

 A "re-creation" of a carousel enthusiasts long awaited "attic find".  It is what I imagine a long lost Illions Supreme Signature Mirror could have looked like as discovered in that dusty old bundle of treasures found in the attic of Aunt Clara's soon to be demolished house...  This is NOT an antique, not even a true to the last drop reproduction, this is a FANTASY!  It does however have authentic roots, the entire frame is cast of architectural urethane in molds I have made from the original Illions 1927 Supreme Rounding Board Mirror of the Coney Island machine.  The mirror glass is the real thing, is is the mirror glass found in that original frame,  (no attempt was made to hide the fact that the mirror silvering has long ago lost it's beauty, but that is what adds to the illusion.  The signage was added to complete this fantasy piece.

Durably constructed cast urethane frame and architectural polyresin cherub with glass mirror and wood ply backer board.  Approximate dimensions are 42" x 22" x 4", weight is 18 pounds.

Only 1 available at $525.00 OBO. plus packing & shipping

Cherub Reproductions
Illions cherub reproduction in primer    
This little angel was a guardian cherub on the Illions' Supreme Carousel in Coney Island, New York.  The Supreme Carousel began it's life in Long Beach, Long Island, New York in the spring of 1927 and moved to Coney Island.  The Supreme was of such magnificence that hundreds of thousands of people from around the world came to Coney Island for the delight of riding this spectacular Merry-go-Round.
Before coming to America, M.C. Illions was a master carver in Europe who carved secular ornamentation for many of Europe's most grand cathedrals.  After his immigration, he began carving American carousel figures of such beauty that he is now recognized as the most respected artist of this craft.  Recently, the Smithsonian Institute declared carousel art to be a fine art form and the few remaining Illions' carvings are treasured as the finest examples of this work.
This cherub and her seventeen little sisters were located at the crown of the carousel and were surrounded by sparkling mirrors, jesters with gorgeous golden plumes, intertwining roses and hundreds of sparkling lights.  They formed a halo over the carousel animals and riders.
This cherub was witness to the joy and delight of the children, the adults, the lovers...for generations and generations.  
When Coney Island was finally closed, she was retired to a private collection in Pennsylvania.  After years of neglect, she was acquired by Spirited Steeds Studio where she was lovingly restored with infinite attention and respect to her original splendor.
This cherub has seen the most wonderful and magical of children's spirits and will continue to reflect this spirit where ever she is placed.
We think if you close your eyes and try very hard, you may be able to hear the laughter of the children and the music of the carousel.
