My post of May 15, 2010 focused on the Zodiac mirror by Finesse Originals.  I know there’s been interest in purchasing these mirrors.  This Zodiac mirror is offered by S J Antiques and Preowned Furniture on eBay.  The price is $299.99 (Buy It Now) or Make Offer with $69 for Greyhound shipping.

Information about the mirror:

BK524 Lot # 9-29-11.  Item Description

This is a cool retro looking mirror. It has all of the zodiac characters. The frame is a fiberglass composite material. It is in very good condition. I figure this is from the late 60s/early 70s. It is ready to hang on your wall.  Size 40” Across X 5.5” Deep.

Rougier tube lamp | Unknown Designer | Rougier, Canada | ca. 1970 | UPDATE

An update to my post of February 4, 2009, the Rougier tube lamp by Rougier, Canada. I’ve posted numerous times before about lamps by Rougier. This lamp sold on October 1, 2011 from Kitty Hawk, NC for $2,995.  There were 4 bidders who placed 10 bids. All images in this post are from eBay, user sobercindy.

eBay completed item screenshot for the Rougier tube lamp.

The lamp was described as follows:

This mushroom shaped Rougier tube lamp is awesome and it is in excellent working condition, the switch and wiring are both very good! There are some stains on the pvc as one would expect in a normal non-smoking environment. The height of the lamp is 22-23” including the base (it measures 6 ¼” x 6 ¼”), which is black and brass. The brass has some minor pitting and scratches, a good polishing could make it look like new, otherwise it is in very good condition. The removable opening on the back is attached by two screws that are easily removed to complete the changing of bulb. The metal label “Rougier” is attached on the back of the base and on the bottom is the “Made in Canada” label. Circa 1960-1970s.
