#MidcenturyMonday from the 19th Century - an enchanting Fears long case clock, dating from around the 1850s with a hand decorated dial and moon-phase.
These photos were sent to us by the clock's owner who still regularly winds it and uses it to tell the time at their home. More and more Fears clocks are coming to light, which does raise the questions - should we be considering producing clocks again?
Happy #midcenturymonday !! Here are my cute pink fishes. They are perfect on the wall in my pink #midcentury bathroom 💕✨
I would love to collect more of these beauties, so if anyone knows of any good deals let me know!! 😉

These photo were kindly sent to us by this watch's owner - a stunning late 1930s ladies rolled gold square cases watch on a later rolled gold bracelet in an attractive shell design. Especially appreciating the numerals on the dial represented in a crisp San-serif.

A little architectural deja vu for your #MidCenturyMonday --where have you seen this mosaic before? The abstract design on the first floor of the former SCE&G (South Carolina Electric & Gas) headquarters at 1400 Lady Street mimics that of the @uofsc Byrnes Building on Sumter Street. Both are designed by renowned Columbia architectural firm LBC&W and both art installations were designed by Gil Petroff. Petroff would scale and plot the design in his office, then an artisan would be flown in from Italy to install the piece. #MidCenturyModern#architecture#publicart#mosaicmural
Witthoefft House (1957) by Arthur Witthoefft situated in Westchester County, New York. Working as an architect at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, in Manhattan at the time, Mr. Witthoefft and family lived in the house for 32 years. It embraces the Modernist ideal of transparency featuring a rectilinear modern structure of exposed steel, white brick, and floor-to-ceiling glass. Vintage furnishing by Harry Bertoia, Paul McCobb, Bird Chairs, Herman Miller, Eames, and others can be found throughout the house. Eco-friendly double-panes replaced the original windows. Light switches, door handles, lighting fixtures, and skylights were salvaged. The glossy white floor is pristine. The house is handsomely resurrected with a balance of meticulousness and ease. #MidCentury#MidCenturyModern#Architecture#NewYork#America#USA#Vibes#Vibe#Timeless
My gray and rainy Monday was made brighter by my father-in-law, @draigg ! He sent a box with 6 packages of these amazing dried orange slices from #traderjoes , along with some birthday loot for Maddie! Thanks so much, Draigg! I'm eating a slice right now. Also, this could be my #midcenturymonday post not only because of the #vintagePyrex and Cosco cart, but because my late Granny used to have those orange slice candies and these taste so much like them! Anyway, back to editing.
