The Well-Appointed Bath: Authentic Plans and Fixtures from the Early 1900's (Landmark Reprint Series).

Washington DC: Natl Trust for Historic, 1989. First edition. Paperback. Oblong small quarto, pp. 126, 26 bathroom plans, over 200 illustrations. Very Good. Item #21796

Reprints two catalogs of bathroom fixtures from the early 20th century: the 1914 Modern Plumbing catalog (#8) by the J. L Mott Iron Works of New York, and Planning Your Plumbing Wisely, published in the mid-1930s by the Standard Sanitary Manufacturing Company of Pittsburgh (later American Standard). The two catalogs provide authentic details of what a well-appointed bath once looked like: from sinks and tubs to toilets, from the floors to the walls and accessories - with even a few kitchen sinks thrown in. Full room views as well as fixture details and costs give an incomparable picture of decoration styles that continued into the 1950s. From the Old House Journal reference library.

Price: $30.00
