Description

CONSTRUCTION:
Our finely crafted night lights are produced using a repurposed, hand polished, commercial grade electrical box housing. The original vintage artwork has been replicated and transferred to a film substrate. The film, then carefully sandwiched between two sturdy pieces of high quality acrylic; protects and highlights the artwork. Our lights are as eye catching as they are functional.

FINISH:
**A metallic reactive paint combination has been applied to give your Light box an ancient look! This reactive quality creates a random Patina. No two will look alike. Please expect variation with the green patina finish. Your box will differ from the photos in this respect.

ELECTRICALLY SPEAKING:
Back lighting is supplied by a UL approved 6 foot long 110V power cord with on/off switch and replaceable 5 watt C7 LED bulb. Bulb can be moved between multiple locations via an Attached clip, to allow for wall or tabletop display. This Warm White LED Night Light Bulb will consume only 10% of the energy of your old incandescent bulbs. Each bulb has three LEDs within it, producing warm, white light at 12 Lumens of brightness. They are cool, producing no heat, ETL approved and will last up to 100,000 hours..

SIZE:
Finished box is: 4″ w x 4″ h x 2.75″ d.

HISTORY:
The 20’s, 30’s and 40’s represented a time when incredible advertising art was fashioned by the world’s greatest graphic designers. The transportation industry was no exception to this trend. NUT Motorcycles was a British motorcycle manufacturer founded in Newcastle Upon Tyne in 1912 by Hugh Mason and Jock Hall, who had previously been making motorcycles since 1906 under a badge based on Mason’s initials, HM, and later under the name of Jesmond and Bercley. By 1913 their racing motorcycles were competing successfully in the Isle of Man TT races and Hugh Mason’s JAP engined NUT motorcycle won the 1913 Junior TT by just 46 seconds. Originally based on JAP and Villiers engines, NUT began to build their own V-twin sports machines. Following further racing success Mason and Hall moved to larger premises but the company could not survive the First World War and was declared bankrupt. The business was bought by Robert Ellis who restarted in 1921 as Hugh Mason and Company, but it foundered in 1922. Between 1923 and 1933 they continued to make motorcycles under the NUT name but in 1933 the company closed for good.

Happy Motoring!
