September 14, 2010Richmond’s Carnival Of Color
By Sablemable aka Jan
I must be obsessed with bathrooms lately. Maybe it’s because I encountered a young person ready to rip out his MCM bathroom that was still in good shape. Or maybe it’s because my Kohler Sunrise Yellow fixtures look like new even though they’re 55 years old. Who knows? We just love colored fixtures!
In my other MCM ranch, we have Richmond fixtures. Richmond Plumbing was a division of Rheem Manufacturing, the ones who make hot water heaters, air conditioners, etc. They are still in business, but alas! Richmond is kaput!
This ad was taken from a magazine from my own personal collection.
The colors from top to bottom are: Mellow Red; Tropic Tan; Azure Blue; Bermuda Coral; New Yellow; Fern Green and Quaker Gray.
Richmond had a sink similar to Crane’s Criterion. Luv it!!!!!
Anyone else have Richmond fixtures?
