I found this at the goodwill last year and I would normally think its a reproduction but the frame is reverse painted and the image is on what seems to be old paper that matches the border perfectly. Who ever had it before me stuck a bunch of tape on the back to keep it in the frame. The tape seems to be old as well much thicker then the normal. I was afraid if I removed the tape to see if it was stamped any where I would ruin it, and even if she is a repo I think shes great. What do you guys think? Old or new? If old do you think she has any value even with tape? My camera battery died I will try to get a picture of the back up soon. Thanks.

    This not real. almost all mirror advertising is fake, or reproduced. there are some out there, but this one is clearly a fantasy. Bar item made in the 70's, or 80's.

    Thanks for info. This is not a mirror though and I do know that this was the first budweiser girl. I have seen many reproductions of this image but all the ones I have seen the girl has a red or green dress. If you know of a web site or any thing that has the pink repro I would love to know it. Thanks and happy hunting!

    Is it pink or faded red? I have seen this image many times but never with the oval frame. Pretty cool however old it is.

    Its original.But circa 1980's original.It was probably kept near a window,where the sun faded her red dress to the pink you have.The A in the logo should also be a vivid,deep red.

    Thanks every one! I guess I can hang her up in the bar now without worrying about any drunks knocking her off the wall.

    I have the exact same piece that you have. I have been searching for days and never thought it would be this hard to find information on it. I can tell you that it is original and she is absolutley wearing a PINK dress. Easy to tell because the A in my logo is still bright red. Like you, I have only found the red or green dresses until now. Also, I believe it to be 1970's instead of 80's, as I seem to remember it in the house before the 80's. SO happy to find your post, and if you have any new info on her I would greatly appreciate it!
