This interesting watch fob is an old celluloid backed mirror mounted in a fob which hangs from a leather strap. The image on the celluloid is of a young woman with bare shoulders. It looks like a painting rather than a photo with soft edges and vague detail. The “frame” appears to be made of a thin hard rubber or early plastic of some sort. The thin leather strap is brown with a silver colored buckle. I find no evidence of a maker on any of the parts. I believe this is from the early 1900’s.
The celluloid portion measures about 1 ½” in diameter with the outer edge of the fob measures about 1 13/16” in diameter. The total length including the strap is about 4 7/8”. It is in nice condition with minor wear. The celluloid has faint scuff and scratch wear. The mirror is in good condition with only a small nick along the outer edge which was probably done when the bezel was set. The leather strap shows light wear however it also appears to have had a repair at some time in its life with a splice. It was well done but it is a repair which can be seen in the photos.
