This old round pocket mirror is advertising Gavitt’s System Regulator which was a laxative that was “Not Allowed in Drug Stores”. The cardboard back of the mirror has some very interesting reading for being so small. The medicine was by the W.W. Gavitt’s Medical Co. of Topeka Kansas and I believe it is from the late 1800’s or early 1900’s. A nonmagnetic metal bezel, possibly zinc, surrounds the mirror and the cardboard back.
It measures about 2 7/8” in diameter and is in good condition with minimal wear. The mirror side is in good condition with just a tiny flake off the edge near the bezel which may have been done during manufacturing. The metal ring around the mirror has a couple of very tiny dents.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
