hinted last Friday, we did pick up something rather fab from the thrifts. It was this full length mid mod mirror!
I couldn't find a good way to photograph it in one frame or without showing myself in it - so please find included the six and half months pregnant shape of me too...
But now, let's focus more on the shape of the mirror itself.
I've already posted about a similar mirror find a little while ago - that mirror was a shorter version of this particular style, and it was in true vintage condition (ie. with nicks and flea bites around the sides) - neither of which made me (or you) love it less.
This guy however, is in such impeccable condition that we had to look twice for signs of age to make us believe that it is das echt article - especially that it had a cheap pricetag on it too. Well, it is the real deal and it does have some very minor signs of having been in someone's care and possession before, like some rubbing on the varnish of the teak from all the years of polishing... It's from around the 60s or so - it has the makers' label on the back stating its original price in Finnish marks. Oh and would you look at how nicely they finished even the MDF backing board with those shaped corners. It's all rather very yummy.
I was joking on the way home from the junk store while my boyfriend was carrying the mirror, that probably we didn't need a longer mirror as much as maybe a wider one. Ha-haaa :) To be honest, as long as my pregnancy is going well and my baby is doing fine I don't mind getting a bit wider for now. Although I did start looking out for a nice vintage bathroom scale too...
I'm looking forward to share this flea find and to see what others have bagged over at my favourite thrifting link-ups, hosted by Sir Thrift a Lot, We Call it Junking, and Me and My Shadow.
