Large Advertising Mirror "Whitehall Turkish Cigarettes"

1880s, "WHITEHALL TURKISH CIGARETTES," Painted and Etched Advertising Sign/Mirror, Choice Very Fine.

Very Rare, original and fantastic 24.5" x 13.5" mirror in original, 30" x 17" wood frame, with advertising for "Whitehall Turkish Cigarettes" painted in gold, tan, red, and green-outlined letters onto the back of the mirrored glass. The base material of the sign is a very heavy, beveled-edge mirror with etched flourishes at the upper left corner and center right-hand edge. A prominent tan and green reverse-painted banner in the center of the mirror reads: "WHITEHALL", and at the bottom of the mirror "TURKISH CIGARETTES" is reverse-painted in red with gold gilt trim. The sign is undated but was manufactured in the late 19th century. We have never seen or heard of this beautiful, large-size Reverse Painted Mirror Backed Sign, which is in choice very fine condition--the mirror backing is bright and clear with no discoloration or streaking; the reverse painted colors are bright and vibrant and there is no fading or significant damage to the mirror or the reverse painting. Wooden frame has some dings and chipping to bottom edge, and the backing is loose but can be easily stabilized. There is some slight flaking and small losses to the reverse painted letters in some places, but these are very minor. Overall very attractive.
