Now what could be more charming than this Buster Brown advertising vanity hand mirror. Buster Brown was adopted as the mascot of the Brown Shoe company in 1904. The company used the logo from 1904 on their promotional giveaways over many years. This sweet pocket size mirror dates from the early 1900's (1904 to 1930's).
Made in a silver metal, possibly silverplate, the framework of the mirror is engraved with a pretty pattern in an Art Nouveau style. The oval center of the front of mirror is engraved with the words "Buster Brown Shoes". Back of the handle is also engraved with the same design as the front. Maker of the mirror, J. E, Margott Co., Newark, N.J. is engraved on one side of the mirror handle
The mirror back is a beveled edge. So typical of many old mirrors, some spotting, crazing to the mirror, itself. Condition of the silver finish is good, although dull. No dings or dents.
Size is 5" L x 2-5/8" wide.
A neat collectible, so suited for gift giving, mixed with a doll collection or advertising collection.
