Don Featherstone designed the classic pink lawn flamingo in 1957. Starting in the 1990s, the sheer volume of imitations forced Don to modify the mold: it now included his signature below the tail of each flamingo.
Identify your flamingo
The traditional plastic pink flamingo comes in a two-pack with Don's signature as part of the blow mold. One flamingo is upright at 3 feet tall, the other has head lowered as if searching for food.
The reverse side of the flamingo will be stamped "Union Products" with the mold dates and item number.
Accept no flamingo substitutes and always check for Don's signature!
Featherstone Flamingo boxes
The box of the basic flamingo is rectangular, indicating itself to contain a pair of pink flamingos.
