J.L. Mott Iron Works online

Greg over at the uber-blog Petch House pointed out in the Old House Web forums that there’s an 1888 J.L. Mott Iron Works catalog online at the New York Public Library Digital Gallery. I have a reprint of a 1914 Mott catalog that I oughts to scan and put online. In the meantime, check out the 1888 flushing-rim slop sink:


And the folding urinals:

    Wow. The artwork for the urinals are surprisingly nice. Never thought that I would say that.

    Flowers on a Urinal would get him intouch with his feminine side….. A flushing sink, that’s odd…

    Oh! I just noticed that one of the urinal flowers is a peony. Snicker.

  4. Hi,

    We were doing a little research into the history of homes in our Queens neighborhood and came across your site. Thanks so much for posting along with the link to NYPL archive. The fixtures then were amazing. Great to have another little bit of history too.

    I have a JL Mott bathroom drinking cup. How can I find out the value and more info about it?
    Thank you,
