Fraser Art Mirrors

The first rectangular mirror with red surround is show in Book 1 as a 'Fraser Art' Mirror.  This description is incorrect as the mirrors are all made of gypsum plaster. All three mirrors shown are probably 'one off' models that never went into circulation.

Maybe the original plan was to make these as PVC Fraser Art mirrors.
