Early 20th century antique american “perfection cooling room” mirrored glass plaque or panel salvaged from a walk-in cooler in my parents old barn in Big Rock IL.. The reverse-painted panel remains largely intact with “silvered” paint (silver leaf). The plaque would have been mounted (framed) against the cabinet (see “in situ” pictures for reference). Bromann brothers was established around 1869 by cabinet maker heinrich bromann. During the 1880’s bromann and sons were building hardwood display cabinetry for neighborhood grocery stores and other specialty stores haberdasheries, women’s clothiers, etc. By the beginning of the 20th century bromann brothers began specializing in building and installing freezer cabinets and later walk-in coolers for neighborhood butchers and package goods stores throughout the west and north sides of chicago. The company continued operations well into the 20th century. Bromann finally closed its doors in 1976. Measures 18 x 12 inches. Once framed you won’t be able to see any of the glue or flaking from the back of the mirror. There is a small chip on the glass just above the B in Bros. And the right side of the O in Room. Lower left corner has a small flaw from behind. The chips and flaw are hardly noticeable. The thin white line in the middle of the mirror is not in the mirror it is part of a reflection.
