has played host to many of the greats from Duke

craftsmen in our Tribeca location in Lower Manhattan.

Brooklyn Fox Theater Mirror  
Brooklyn Fox Theater Mirror

ca 1900
glass mirror

This peach mirror was salvaged from Downtown
Brooklyn’s Fox Theater. The theater was designed
by architect C. Howard Crane. It opened on August
21, 1928 and seated 4,305 guests. By the early
1960s, the Fox Theater was a popular concert venue
hosted by influential rock and roll impresario and disc
jockey, Murray Kaufman, professionally known as Murray the K.

This acid-etched peach colored mirror depicting
underwater scenes along with seventeen others,
lined the theater’s original lobby. It was in front of
these mirrors that Murray the K coined the phrase “Rock ‘n’ Roll”.

It is in mint condition.

58”w x 88 1/2”h
