    Though not a 'bar mirror', this was in the stack with 'em so I took pics of it too... ;-) :-)

    This is one more surviving bit of a ~1980's 'crane game' arcade machine which I scrapped numerous years ago. Being made of plastic, this piece didn't much care about having been left sitting under a very leaky barn roof. (quite unlike most of the rest of the machine, thus why I scrapped it...) This was the "name panel" mirror front and center atop the 'big glass boxful of toys', originally mounted in a shadowbox sorta frame w/little chaser-lights all the way around its perimeter. It measures about 9" x 22".

    I showed the coin door assembly from the same machine here, a couple wks ago:

      for having a look and tapping the <love it> button!! :-) :-) :-)

      I've got the actual 'crane/trolley mechanism' parts from the machine in a box someplace around here too, even though they were mostly kinda rusty and not very picturesque anymore. IIRC, it is kind of interesting because it is largely operated by what appeared to be a couple of automotive (Volkswagen?) electric windshield-wiper motors. I suppose I should snap a few pics of all that too, the next time I come across that box...??
