Greening's Big Nurseries Pocket Mirror: Monroe, MI - $35 (west of Ann Arbor)

123

condition: good
make / manufacturer: Greening's Big Nurseries
size / dimensions: 2 1/2 inches in diameter

I'm not sure of the actual date of this pocket mirror, but I'm guessing in the 1920s, 1930s. The company was putting out manuals for park, garden, orchard, and lawn products as early as 1917, probably before that time. Local Monroe historians should have even a better idea of this mirror's date.

The reflective part of the mirror has seen better days and some of the silvering is gone, but it still shows a reflection. The main side of the mirror, though, is what's really neat. It's colorful and in great shape for its age. The logo "Trees You Can Trust" is surrounded by what looks like shrubbery and trees.

This pocket mirror is 2 ΒΌ inches in diameter.
