Who would have thought
Who would have thought that American plumbing fixtures were a sign of wealth in Australia. We just finished up a containerload of 1950’s vintage bathrooms for shipment to Australia where they are to be installed in an unnamed, rather well off, person’s Mansion. Everything was fully restored, and consisted of 7 bathrooms in period colors.
Many different period colors were used, so just imagine the fun and frustration of locating MATCHING 60 year old fixtures in pink, blue ,and green.
And then many more hours going through them to make sure everything worked and looked perfect. Then, one day the container showed up, we had two hours to hand load the thing, and away our toilets went, on to a new life with a famous rear warming their seats….
Here’s a hint to those who found similar wonderful old fixtures at their local architectural salvage place. There’s a reason it’s there! The parts may not be available to fix it! Beware the Jabberwocky, my son!
All for now!
