This colorful celluloid backed pocket mirror is advertising Sam’s New Fair Store of West Allis, Wisconsin but more importantly it’s a birthstone chart. The outer edge has the twelve months of the year with the name and a rendition of the gemstone that represents each month. It also has a trait attributed to that month, for instance; January – Garnet – Constancy. Along the edge it reads; Parisian Novelty Co. Chicago.
The celluloid is in fairly good condition with no cracks or splits and minimal wear but there are tiny bumps from imperfections under the celluloid. The mirror side quite dark but it’s not cracked. There is a fracture to one edge which is shown in the photos. This is smooth over the top so it may have happened during the manufacturing. It measures about 2 3/16" in diameter.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
