    I do not know much about this mirror or what it was used for, except that it may be from the 50's from the wording on it. Any info would be helpful.

      It was a gift. So I did not pay anything for it. It is definately not a decal though and it is not applied to the face of the mirror.

      The mirror also has two holes in it. One on each side of the logo, if it does not show up in the picture.

      "Sign of Good Taste" started being used in 1957. The holes in the mirrors are where two screws were inserted, upon which flower or deco motif caps attached and secured a wire hanger across the back. Bottlers sometimes had these pieces manufactured locally as give-a-ways to local customers (without The Company's consent). I can't tell, on the arciform (fishtail graphic), is there any trademark info? You say it isn't a decal. It could be a decal or paint applied to the back side of the glass, then reverse painted with mirror finish. If there's no trademark info or manufacturer's mark on it, and it's not documented in any of the well-known collectors books, will be hard to authenticate.

      I appreciate all this information. There is no trademark or manufacturer's marks and it does appear to be reverse painted on the back of the glass of the mirror.
