Window Treatments and Light Globes

I was fortunate enough to track down a catalog cut of our exact blinds from a 103 year old Dayton Manufacturing Catalog book. Many of our interior hardware features are listed in this amazing catalog.

Eleven of the 15 globes were stolen out of the car prior to its move back to Tacoma. The former owner had a number of items as well that were to be provided once the car was transported back to Tacoma. The former owner never kept his word and failed to return any phone calls once I moved the car. I was very disappointed as these unique and rare pieces will be quite costly to reproduce. Over the years and with the assistance of Ebay, I have been able to purchase some hard to find items that were missing from the car.
