Last week two large boxes arrived.
I had not been expecting them.
Then I noticed the return address.
Megan had sent me something!!!!!!!! I was breathless with anticipation!
Megan is also restoring a great big old house, and she also blogs about the adventure.
But what had she sent me????????
Porcelier became famous for the quality of their product, and aesthetic. Most of what the company produced featured gorgeous floral designs. However, around 1950, the company boldly broadened their line, and what Megan found is a high example of this new, innovative direction.
These “last generation” lighting fixtures (Porcelier closed in 1954) are incredibly rare, and, rarer still, to find with their respective components still intact. Thus, you can imagine my considerable glee at opening Megan’s two boxes!
Today, we think of 1950s styling as being influenced by the Atomic age. But that is the late 1950s. The early 1950s are quite a different aesthetic, and this circa-1950 fixture typifies the era at its very very very best.
YOU ARE FABULOUS!!!!!!!!
