Found this really cool Beautiflor commercial on YouTube, featuring the wax, applicator, and late-model JW floor conditioner!

Speaking of polish

When looking at the links above I saw this one - love all the vintage appliances shown. One thing strikes me as off though, all the cabinets appear to be on legs. Was this common? We see it now with IKEA and the like, but I have never seen anything but solid plinths (kickboards) back then.

If my memory serves me this brand name was used in the most recent season of Mad Men too

Australian advert - it amazes me how British the voiceover announcer is. The polisher was light blue in colour, not a million miles from the Lark 14

Random coincidence on the post time perhaps? :P

Thanks for posting those Charles, they were really fun. Especially liked the first one. What a shame we can't buy wax like that today.

re: legs on kitchen cabinets

I don't think it's too common, but it is a nice look for a kitchen. I saw a movie made in Wisconsin, according to the end credits, the farmhouse kitchen had its cabinets on legs. I thought it was a good look.

Heheheh, I didn't even notice! So, yes, 'twas but a coincidence.

Or WAS it?! {{{*oooooooEEEooooooo*}}}

I have some other Johnson Wax commercials to post that I found last night. I'm going to upload them to YouTube, hopefully will get to it later today.

A blessed Ash Wednesday today to those who commemorate the occasion.

Here's the Johnson Wax polisher you see briefly in the fabulous video above, along with the Sunbeam-branded version that JW manufactured for Sunbeam.

These are obviously the same machine but with slight differences (other than the color, of course). The Sunbeam model has a foot-switch on the base instead of a sliding on-off switch on the top of the handle as with the JW model, and the handle is shaped a little differently.

More Johnson's Wax Polisher Commercials!

Here are four more Johnson's Wax Polisher commercials. These are all for the Model HP54 from 1954, my very favorite JW polisher! I was SO excited to come across these that I nearly DID, well, never mind...!

Enjoy :)

Here's the first one...

Charles, these were fantastic!!! Thanks so much for posting them. I do not remember ever seeing one of these on TV. I wonder if they were just in certain areas of the country?

That's too funny! I don't ever remember seeing my Mom run her floor polisher with her high heel shoes on!

Other than the latest commercial with the newer Floor Care Machine, I wasn't born yet when these commercials would have aired, so I don't remember them either. But I don't remember ever seeing the later one, and if I =had= ever seen it I certainly would remember!! I don't know the exact date of it but it would have been sometime in the early to mid 1960s.
