retrohome : 70s accessories

Caroma 'Bath Mates' towel ring, 1970sCaroma towel ring
made in South Australia, 1970s

Keeping in the 70s- what a delightful era for OTT design- here are towel rings : pillar box red and deep apple green in original boxes. A perfect square houses a perfect circle- the paired back geometry then made in an outrageous colour – this is the epitome of 70s design [and now available for your bathroom!]

Made by Caroma, these ‘Bath Mates’ come with all the hardware to install: think of the contemporary bathroom all subdued white surfaces and then one crazy statement piece- the towel ring! Or- add to your retro 70s bathroom with an authentic piece or two. As it says on the box: this is ‘The Crowning Touch’!

This collection came from a closing-down hardware store; there are 2 pillar box red, 2 deep apple green and two royal blue towel rings- so pairs of the rings are a possibility. Originally they also came in mission brown and bright orange [so very 70s.]

The towel rings are for sale: $AUD10 each or $AUD18 for a pair + postage.

  1. Hi there I would like to buy 2 of your towel rings, red if possible but green OK also. Or one of each. How do I go about buying and paying? thanks Dana Tymms
