16 LAMP 1930s COMMERCIAL CHRISTMAS LIGHT DECORATION SET

 

WELCOME TO MY SET SALE FOR THIS LOVELY SET OF VINTAGE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS.

THIS SET OF LIGHTS DATE FROM AROUND THE 1930s (POSSIBLY 1940s) WHICH PUTS THEM AT LEAST 70 YEARS OLD. THERE ARE 16 LIGHTS ON THE STRING WITH THE LAMP HOLDERS MADE IN DARK GREEN BAKELITE. THE 16 LAMP HOLDERS ARE ALL IN VERY GOOD CONDITION WITH NONE OF THEM SHOWING ANY DAMAGE. THE WIRING IS OF THE VERY OLD CLOTH COVERED VARIETY AND, AS YOU WOULD EXPECT, HAS AGED SOMEWHAT OVER THE YEARS AND WOULD NO LONGER BE CONSIDERED SAFE TO USE. THERE DOESN'T APPEAR TO BE ANY MAJOR DAMAGE TO THE WIRE OR IT'S COVERING EXCEPT WHERE IT HAS FRAYED AT THE BASE OF ONE OF THE BULB HOLDERS. THIS WOULD NEED IMMEDIATE ATTENTION BEFORE USING THIS SET. THE BULBS ARE ALL ORIGINAL AND, AMAZINGLY, THEY ALL WORK. THERE ARE ALSO 2 WORKING SPARES IN THE BOX. THERE IS A BIT OF PAINT LOSS TO THE BULBS, MAINLY THROUGH AGEING, BUT IT JUST ADDS TO THE CHARM OF THESE INCREDIBLY RARE LIGHTS. WOULD MAKE A LOVELY DISPLAY PIECE BUT DO NOT CONFORM TO TODAYS MODERN STANDARDS.

THE LIGHTS COME IN A THEIR ORIGINAL BOX WHICH, ALTHOUGH SHOWING SIGNS OF WEAR, IS STILL VERY GOOD CONSIDERING IT IS AROUND 70 YEARS OLD. A FEW CREASES AND LIGHT RUBS BUT THAT'S ABOUT IT. NO MAJOR TEARS OR BITS MISSING. THE ORIGINAL INSERT TO HOLD THE LAMPS IS STILL IN THE BOX AND IS IN GOOD CONDITION. THESE WILL BE PACKED WELL FOR TRANSIT AND I WILL ENSURE THAT NONE OF THE BULBS ARE TOUCHING SO THAT NO DAMAGE OCCURS.

   THE BULBS IN THIS SET ARE 16 VOLT SCREW IN AND ARE THE SAME THREAD AS STANDARD OLIVE CONE LAMPS (E10). AS MENTIONED ABOVE, THERE ARE 2 WORKING SPARES IN THE BOX. DO NOT USE 20 VOLT BULBS WITH THIS SET AS IT WILL CAUSE OVERLOADING ISSUES.

YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHS THAT THESE LIGHTS STILL WORK DESPITE THEIR AGE. HOWEVER, DUE TO THEIR AGE AND THE FACT THAT THEY NEED SOME REPAIRS, I AM SELLING THESE AS A DISPLAY PIECE ONLY AND NOT FOR USE. IDEAL FOR COLLECTORS OR A MUSEUM. 

THE LIGHTS WILL BE SUPPLIED WITHOUT A PLUG.

POSTAGE FOR THESE LIGHTS WILL BE BY 2nd CLASS SIGNED FOR MAIL. HOWEVER, FOR HIGH VALUE ITEMS I RECOMMEND SPECIAL DELIVERY WHICH WILL INSURE AGAINST LOSS OR DAMAGE. THESE ITEMS ARE VERY DELICATE AND WHILE I WILL PACK THEM TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY TO ENSURE SAFE TRANSIT, I CANNOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEM ONCE POSTED.
