    Another wonderful Canadian Blue Flamingo Mirror, circa 1950-55, extremely rare ! Most beautiful when the light hits them !

    The ones I know about are the 2 love birds, 2 deer, 2 flamingo, 3 geese. My favourite is the 3 geese possibly. The other size they made is 26 inches high by 9 3/4. Also the love birds large ones are truly magnifique !

    This is the first I have seen of the round 12 inch or 30.48 cm mirror. All I really know about these blue mirrors is that they may have been sold at the hardware stores in Canada during the 50's. Gorgeous styling and the most beautiful cobalt colour, when it captures the light it is magnifique ! These mirrors were only made in Canada.

      Love these! I have the 26" version with the two flamingo's. Also have one of the round one's like yours. I often wondered weather they ever made the round ones facing different ways so you could display them on either side of the larger one. You have such excellent taste!

      Thank you rocker-sd, you have great taste also. No, I do not believe they ever made ones of opposing directions. Just not something a lot of manufacturers did.

      Wow, excuse me whilst I wipe away the envy.

      What an interesting object. I have never seen mirrors like that.

      Thank you freiheit, they are very cobalt blue and rarely found anymore.

      I have the cobalt blue mirror with the 2 deer. I was wondering if I tried to sell it, how much would it be worth?

      Its the most common one unfortunately, I have 5 of them. Put it on ebay under blue mirror plaque.
