Product Description

An original and rare advertising mirror for C.A.V Radio Batteries…

Dating to the earlier part of the 20th century, circa 1920s, this is a rare advertising mirror with an authentic patina. “Charles Anthony Vandervell set up CAV Ltd in London, making diesel fuel injection equipment for diesel engine manufacturers worldwide and electrical equipment for commercial and military vehicles”. Later to be acquired by Lucas in 1926

This is a rare piece of advertising. The glass fascia is mounted onto a wooden backing and then surrounded by a rubber trim. The writing is portrayed using reverse glass, therefore the fascia is smooth to touch like that of a normal mirror. There is a wonderful pattern to the glass which borders of the written elements. This certainly is an eye catcher and can readily be ‘wall hung’ using the ready made eyelet at the top of the mirror…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The advertising mirror is in nice shape, with no obvious damage or breaks. That said, this is an old piece, therefore there are scratches to the glass and some other surface abrasions. The rubber trim is tatty in places, but the entire piece oozes charm and authenticity. There are some surface imperfections, but all in all it’s a fine piece of advertising. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

Please Note : This was a tricky piece to photograph due to reflections, we’ve tried to show the condition the best we can
