I have some vintage ad mirrors. They’re oval, have a picture and a company’s info on the ‘outside’ and a mirror on the ‘inside’.

Some of them, though, are different in that the ‘outside’ has just a pretty picture and the ‘inside’ has weighted celluloid and has the advertising on that.

What are these other things called?

Thanks 🙂

My first post says “Some of them, though, are different in that the ‘outside’ has just a pretty picture and the ‘inside’ has weighted celluloid and has the advertising on that.”

Have you ever searched for “advertising paperweights”?

This is why I’m hoping that there’s a colloquial term for them, so they can be meaningfully searched for with some modicum of success.

The pretty girls, by the way, are very often Asti girls. Angelo Asti was an Italian artist who painted a series of women that were used prolifically in the early 20th century in Europe and in the US. Some consider Asti to be the originator of the “Pin-up Girls”.
