Early 1900s Grinnell Bros. Advertising Pocket Mirror Michigan - $65 (north of Stockbridge)

12345

condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Parisian Mfg. Co. Chicago
model name / number: Grinnell Brothers
size / dimensions: 2 1/8 inches in diameter

This original pocket mirror is colorful and has very clear graphics (see the cars pictured). The front is celluloid and 2 1/8 inches in diameter.

As you can see from the photo, the mirror is really nice, with very little to no silver loss. It's in amazing shape for being approximately a hundred years old.

On the rim, in very small letters, is printed “Parisian Mfg. Co. U.S.A.” The Parisian Mfg. Co. was located in Chicago. The company made advertising pocket mirrors between 1917-1923.

The front features the Grinnell headquarters, built in 1908, flying the Grinnell flag.

The building was located on Woodward, but there were 24 stores throughout Michigan and Windsor.
