Pullman Sconces!

An unrestored Pullman railcar. See the wall sconce?

This is what one looks like restored. I recently acquired a matched pair!

The sconces are beautifully detailed and, wow, retain their original coat hooks, switches, and shades (an early form of plastic). I love stuff like this! Soooooooo cool!

    Those are very cool.

    When we were house-shopping, we looked at a very nice 1885 Victorian that had a repurposed Pullman sink in a first-floor bathroom. It was a good choice, as the bathroom was very small!

    Can you post a link to a photo? I think I may have something similar!

      You have an exceedingly charming corner sink but I do not think it is a repurposed Pullman sink.
