What appears to be an unassuming portrait of a sweet young woman quickly takes a turn when you flip this pocket mirror upside down and place your finger over her head.

Optical illusions, such as the one on this pocket mirror, were incredibly popular in the late Victorian era through the 1920s.  You may have seen the many Victorian skull illusion prints where often times two figures and strategically placed lamp light gives the illusion of a skull.  Perhaps one of the most popular art pieces depicting optical illusions was that of Salvadore Dali L'Amour De Pierrot from 1920. 

These optical illusion pocket mirrors were printed on paper and encased with a celluloid cover.  There is a mirror fastened on the back.
