Pittsburgh, PA. American Radiator and Standard Sanitary Corporation. 1949.
Oversized spiral-bound catalog, 11 x 14 inches, 42 pp., decorative card covers. Cover shows wear; scratches and dings to free edge corners, but contents are in overall good, clean condition, with occasional very light soil from handling. An uncommon item. The introduction states "As you turn the pages of this book you will visit 16 beautiful rooms - bathrooms, kitchens, basements, and utility rooms. These rooms have been chosen to give you a glimpse of the countless delightful interiors possible with American-Standard Fixtures. The full-page illustrations are truly impressive, and on the opposite page a floor plan with dimensions is provided as well as inset illustrations depicting special features not immediately evident. Surprisingly, there are no WorldCat listings for this item. Bathroom and Kitchen pages are introduced with "Planning tips from Decorators" while words like "Beauty," "Luxury," "Convenience," "Efficiency" establish the catalog's overall tone. An intriguing mid-century catalog. Item #53876
