Out & About Lecture: Whats a Motion Machine? History of Baranger Studios
From the late 1930s to the late 1950s, one might have seen a Baranger Motion display in the window of a fancy jewelry store or optical shop. Intended to catch your eye, these fanciful displays featured mechanical flying saucers, fire engines, or whimsical ships all designed to help sell featured jewelry. Collector extraordinaire, Justin Pinchot, will present the history of the Baranger Studios from a unique perspective. I witnessed the last decade of the Baranger business as a child who grew up two blocks away. As a teenager, I was intimately involved in the process of its closing. As an adult collector and historian, I continue to educate and promote the Baranger legacy. Pinchot will bring several motion machines to share. Charles Stanislawski, PMH Trustee and CEO of Stanislawski & Company, will open up the historic Baranger Studios for this event.
