Vintage SS Roma Commemorative Mirror Souvenir 1920's Ocean Liner

- petite round beveled mirror honoring Italian ocean liner SS Roma
- ship was built for the Italian shipping company Navigazione Generale Italiana of Genoa in 1926
- these mirrors were likely gifted as a memento for first class passengers on SS Roma's maiden voyage
- they were quite small as to fit in the tiny purses of the 1920's
- the silver tone metal backside of the mirror features a raised image of a gladiator as well as a bear and boars
- the ship had quite a history including capture by the Germans during WWII
- she was finally scrapped in 1951

Size: 1 3/4" diameter

Condition: Very good condition for age. Mirror has superficial scratches but no yellowing, chips or cracks. Some of my pics were taken with the item resting on a white bottle cap in an attempt to capture light. The last 2 pics show the 2 sides lying flat.

Sold AS IS for cash only at the time of item pick-up. No moving assistance is available so bring a buddy for larger items. Call and please leave message if we are not available.
