This unusual, vintage, celluloid backed mirror is unassuming at first glance but could be considered a bit risque. It has a line drawing of a lovely lady with bobbed hair admiring herself in a hand held mirror. Her other hand is resting gently at the base of her long neck. However if the mirror is turned and the lower portion is covered by your thumb it becomes a rather suggestive and "naughty" picture. These optical "games" have been popular since the Victorian period.
It measures about 2 1/8" in diameter and is in nice condition with some wear. The celluloid has no cracks or splits but has a slight amount of light discoloration which can be seen when held in the right light and angle. The mirror side is not cracked or broken but the silvering is crazed and there is also some discoloration. The metal ring has a couple of small spots of surface rust.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
