Beautiful Military Services and Flag Commemorative Yuengling Mirror - $30 (Wakefield)

Beautiful Military Services and Flag Commemorative Yuengling Mirror 1 thumbnailBeautiful Military Services and Flag Commemorative Yuengling Mirror 2 thumbnail
condition: fair
make / manufacturer: Yuengling
For sale: A beautiful Yuengling large bar mirror honoring the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard, on a U.S. flag background, with superimposed images of two aircraft carriers and three servicemen. The image is on the back of the glass. This is a rare item.

HOWEVER, it was broken in shipping. Two cracks are visible in the images, but I believe that we recovered each small piece of glass for repair (like the two little triangles at the top and left sides of the glass).

Even with the cracks, it's impressive.

It is mounted in an attractive heavy frame about 1.5" to 2" thick. The outer dimensions of the frame are 30.5" x 24.5". I'd say it weighs about 5 pounds total.

Since this is valuable, a glass shop suggested mounting it on another piece of glass and fitting in the several tiny pieces, and possibly touching up the color at the cracks.

Our daughter bought this for a friend, and paid over $300.

The circles you see at the left of the mirror are reflections from the overhead lights when photographed.

Apparently Yuengling has commissioned several different such pieces, which are all rare and valuable now.
