Switchplated Published by Editor B on Thursday, 14 February 2008 I finally got the set of old Bakelite push-button switchplates I ordered from eBay. Published inOur House bakeliteinterior decoratingOur HouseRenovationswitchplates
Didn’t those set you back a pretty penny?
Their perfect for your home’s style and charm though B.
The switches themselves were expensive, but I got those in — jeez — 2006, I think. What’s new are the switchplates, the covers, the rectangular brown things. And they were cheaper.
Those are cool – I had those in an apartment I rented in the 80’s on Carondelet street
Very cool! Thanks for sharing.
Nice! I installed pushbuttons in a few spots and used brass switchplates with an oil-rubbed bronze finish but original Bakelite is great.
check out the repro covers for plugs at the store on french market place across the street from the old mint.
