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 “Rich Rust” 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 transportation industry was no exception to this trend. The distressed BSA Motorcycles label housed within this rustic light speaks to the care given to ‘advertising quality’ of the golden age. The Birmingham Small Arms Company Limited (BSA) was a major industrial combine. At its peak, BSA was the largest motorcycle producer in the world. Loss of sales and poor investments in new products in the motorcycle division, which included Triumph Motorcycles, led to problems for the whole group. There were perhaps too diversified as they specialized in: military and sporting firearms; bicycles; motorcycles; cars; buses and bodies; steel; iron castings; hand, power, and machine tools; coal cleaning and handling plants; and hard chrome process. That’s a lot of irons in the fire. They built fine motorcycles however. Heavily collected. Very cool! They didn’t make night lights though. Get yours here! Launched in 1957 the BSA Super Rocket had a new alloy head and an Amal TT racing carburettor. In 1961 a new “357” full-race camshaft with high lift was used, with more dwell and faster valve action to improve performance.

Happy Motoring!
