Vintage Decorative Switchplates
When we moved into our Bungalow in June, we noticed there were a few things left on the shelves of the garage. I casually skimmed through what was there, I found old door knobs, screws, nails and what nots. Standing up against the walls are several doors and some windows. I haven't had a chance to go through that stack but what's fascinating is there is an old bungalow style screen door I can't wait to get my hands on. I didn't get a chance to go through each door as they are leaning up against each other and the screen door is near the back. We then started to store large items in the garage so at the moment I'm unable to get to them but first chance I get, I will pull them out and post.
William Spencer. They have been in business for over 60 years which leads me to believe these switchplates were probably made in the mid-50's, probably bought by the Wittigs who were originally from New York City before they moved to Manistee, MI. Read more about the Wittigs on the right side panel of this blog under, "North Shore Bungalow's Claim to Fame".
Thanks for stopping by! Until next time,
