I received this picture from my Aunt who passed away a few years ago, in Kentucky. I had always admired it as a child. She had it hanging in her wash room as far back as I can remember, (age 5 ) about 45 years ago. My great Aunt ran a grocery store and soda parlor she gave it to her. My cousins made her old store into a local museum. I have not seen anything quite like it before. It is silver and black painted on the glass and in pretty good condition and I believe in the original frame. Looking for any information and value.

    Sorry to disapoint you, but I don't think it's 90 years old, seven-up, well the name was, devoloped in the forty's, and was really popular in the 50's, that's about how old I think the mirror is. It's about mid fiftys, don't know the value.

    Hello! I did not think that my 90 year old Aunt received it when she was a baby! I assumed the picture was either late 30's or 40's (it was renamed 7up in 1936). Since they were trying to promote 7up had natural ingredients I believed that was one key to dating he parlor sign. So I assumed with the FACT that it WAS in my GREAT Aunts grocery store and that my Aunt probably got it from her in the 50's or 60's according to my mother, we dated to that period. I was looking for someone who actually knew something about 7up collectibles to contribute information. Please read the whole comment not just the headline of the article next time. Thanks again for your reply.
