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. Please email for custom needs.

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. The distressed Rudge-Whitworth Motorcycles label housed within this rustic light speaks to the care given to ‘advertising quality’ of the golden age. Rudge Whitworth Cycles was a British bicycle, bicycle saddle, motorcycle and sports car wheel manufacturer that resulted from the merger of two bicycle manufacturers in 1894, Whitworth Cycle Co of Birmingham, founded by Charles Henry Pugh (1840-1901) and his two sons Charles Vernon and John, and Rudge Cycle Co of Coventry (which descended from a bicycle company founded by Daniel Rudge of Wolverhampton). Rudge motorcycles were produced from 1911 to 1946. The firm was known for its innovations in engine and transmission design, and its racing successes. Their sales motto was “Rudge it, do not trudge it.” Selling re-badged Werners in 1909, the company went on to produce their first motorcycle in 1911, a single-cylinder F-head.

Happy Motoring!
