(I have just removed previous photos and added 4 new ones showing the hallmark closer, the beveled mirror, end of the handle and the monogram)
Wow! I can't believe what I've just seen! I honestly had no idea this hand held vanity mirror had this hallmark on it, and it's not even hidden!!! What was I thinking???
The hallmark is in the shape of a fish and it either says PATO or Vato? It looks like it's got an arrow thru it but it may be representative of a tail? The initials on it are RFD, too bad they're not FDR!
That's just crazy...I have had this mirror for at least 30yrs and did not know until just now that mark was there. I remember looking for that with what I thought at the time to be diligent! I suppose I was looking too hard and apparently, in all the wrong places! lol,wow.
Ok, I have come to the conclusion that I have seen this, but the best side of me (can you all see that I'm arguing with myself here, lol) I must have seen this but just didn't know what the hallmark said! Yes my friends, I'm shaking my head too!
Well, if anyone might know what the hallmark is, I promise I won't forget that!
Thank you antique rose!!! Enjoy everyone, I hope you at least have a good laugh!!!
