32) Dr. LeGear Poultry Powder Mirror

Extremely rare celluloid hand mirror from Dr. LeGear when he was still in Austin, Texas.  Dr. LeGear started making his veterinary remedies in Austin, Texas in the 1890’s.  He started a second factory in St. Louis and eventually moved his entire operation there by 1905. So, the production of this mirror predates that 1905 move.       2 ¼” diameter.  Condition is excellent with very good color.  The only damage is a small cut to the celluloid just above the tail of the hen on the right.  This is the first example I have ever auctioned but I have seen two others in collections.  I recorded an example off eBay in 2012 that sold for $430.  Another great veterinary hand mirror available in this auction.
