When I wrote about vintage waste bins the other day I focused on the pretty little ones you would typically find in a bathroom, bedroom or office.
So Tracey, this one’s for you!
Oscar the Grouch in his galvanized garbage can home.
Similar to this one here.
According to Urban Remains Chicago, this antique industrial trash can, c. 1910-20s, was made of heavy galvanized steel and reinforced at the joints with rivets. It was made by the Witt Cornice Company, now Witt Industries in Cinncinati. Founder, George Witt invented the first corrugated, galvanized ash can and lid in 1899 and patented it at that time.
These trash cans were historically placed in city parks… oh, and did you know that Witt Industries is now a woman-owned business?
But if I let Oscar in on that little detail, I’m pretty sure this is what he would tell me to do…
What do you think of Oscar’s vintage trash can?
I think it’s très cool, too!
With a little Oscar style in your space…
There’s a whole lot of personality in your place!
It’s about coming home… If you want a remarkable space that tells your story, contact me to see how we can help!
