Default Show Us Your Hand Mirrors - First One I Ever Bought - c1900

 photo full tagged_zpslj21f5os.jpg

It's always exciting to come across something you've never seen before...Got this c1900 hand mirror in the mail the other day....pretty happy with it...The mirror is still in good shape...the back is porcelain...and I believe the Yale 8 man crew scene is hand painted...The markings on it indicate it was made in Germany...Uncharted finds are one of the best things about collecting...ya never know what's out there!!!...

(and Bob :-)) nice stuff. I would guess that there's a few other pieces out there with the same scene as your hand mirror. They were most often offered in sets........
I didn't know Mark's interests/conquests were so broad.
BTW Bob - I found the REA cover with the BB circus scene. I'll try and remember to send you a pic and the subsequent description......

Thanks Carlton and Henry. I bought mine off of eBay earlier this year. I was told by someone in the know about these that the mirror is an original mirror. I dont know for sure and find it difficult to believe that the mirror could have survived all these years.

Henry, I would love to see the picture. Please email it to me. Thanks

Carlton-

Does your mirror have the little piece at the top of the diamond (where 2nd Base would be?) Bob and I were trying to figure out how that piece would attach to the mirror... Most likely from behind, I suppose.

If you have a photo of that portion, please share... Thanks!

Mine doesn't have the second base top...but I've seen one in person somewhere that did...it just slips on...just hangs on the top corner the mirror

Cooper had my baseball mirror...not the Yale mirror
