I recently bought this at an estate sale. It is 12 x 18 inches. I have noticed that the letter 'O's in the Coca-Cola are open. According to Petretti's 12th edition, that would make this from the 1898-1902 time frame. This estate sale had alot of older items, such as Magazines from the 1880s through the 1940s as well as the top half of a Lillian Nordica 1905 advertising card (missing the coupon). I can really use some help identifying the age of this piece.
I also picked up this pocket mirror at the same sale. The only text i can read on the bottom is C The Coca-Cola Co. I cannot read the text at the botom of the mirror. Any help with the age of the mirror would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure the mirror is a fantasy piece. I've seen these every where. In the 70's, coke started making reproduction items. And at the same time, companys were making all these fantasy pieces. That mirror is probably one of them. I have no idea of any oringinal one that looked like that. The pocket mirror could possibly be real, but not enough info or close ups of the coca cola logo. So I'm assuming that's a repoduction pocket mirror.
