Fowler Light Fixture
Recycled Depression era glass Fowler jar pendant lights
Joseph Fowler set up a fruit bottling business in Burke Road, Melbourne in the early 1900’s and he sold his preserving kits door to door from the back of a cart until he opened a shop in Hawthorn in 1920. During the Depression ‘Fowler Kits’ which included a sterilizer, bottles, lids, rings and a thermometer, became a household name as house wives were urged to bottle their own fruit and jams by ‘Mrs B Thrifty’ – the cartoon character who graced the firms advertisements.
