 VINTAGE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS 20 LAMP PIFCO PARTY LIGHTS DECORATION SET

 

WELCOME TO MY AUCTION FOR THIS FANTASTIC SET OF VINTAGE CHRISTMAS LIGHTS.

THIS SET OF LIGHTS ARE PIFCO PARTY LIGHTS (No 1328) AND DATE FROM THE 1970s. THERE ARE 20 LIGHTS ON THE STRING WITH MULTICOLOURED PLASTIC SHADES. ALTHOUGH FAIRLY ROBUST, THESE SHADES ARE OFTEN FOUND WITH SEVERAL BITS SNAPPED OFF, CRUSHED OR EVEN MISSING ALTOGETHER. HOWEVER, THIS SET IS IN PERFECT CONDITION WITH NO DAMAGE WHATSOEVER. ALL OF THE 20 BULBS IN THIS SET WORK PERFECTLY AND ALL THE COLOURS SHINE BRIGHTLY. EVERY SINGLE SHADE HAS THE CORRECT COLOUR BULB AND EVERY BULB LOOKS TO BE ORIGINAL. THE FIRST BULB ON THE STRING IS THE SAFETY FUSE BULB. THERE IS A LITTLE MINOR PAINT LOSS TO THE BULBS HERE AND THERE BUT NOTHING THAT DISTRACTS FROM THEIR BEAUTIFUL APPEARANCE WHEN LIT. OVERALL, A FANTASTIC SET OF VINTAGE LIGHTS THAT ARE BECOMING VERY DIFFICULT TO FIND IN THIS CONDITION. ONE OF PIFCO'S LESS COMMON SETS AND DIFFICULT TO TRACK DOWN.

THE LIGHTS COME IN THEIR ORIGINAL BOX WHICH IS STILL IN TIDY CONDITION FOR IT'S AGE BUT DOES HAVE SOME TAPE DAMAGE TO THE FRONT AND GENERAL WEAR/LIGHT CREASING ALTHOUGH IT IS NOT TORN ANYWHERE. THE INSERT TO HOLD THE LIGHTS IS PRESENT AND IN GOOD CONDITION. THESE WILL BE PACKED WELL FOR TRANSIT SO THAT NO DAMAGE OCCURS.

   THE BULBS IN THIS SET ARE 12.5 VOLT 1.1 WATT SCREW IN LILLIPUT TYPE LAMPS. THIS IS A PERMANENT CONTACT SET SO IF ONE FAILS THE REST WILL STAY ALIGHT. 

YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHS HOW BEAUTIFUL THESE LIGHTS LOOK WHEN LIT. THERE ARE FIVE COLOURS IN TOTAL AND, AS CAN BE SEEN IN THE PICTURES, THE LIGHTS WORK PERFECTLY.

THE LIGHTS WILL BE SUPPLIED WITHOUT A PLUG AND, ALTHOUGH IN WORKING ORDER, THESE ARE STILL A VINTAGE ELECTRONIC ITEM AND SHOULD BE CHECKED BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN BEFORE USE.

A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO GET YOUR HANDS ON AN ORIGINAL SET OF WONDERFUL CONDITION PIFCO PARTY LIGHTS. NOT THE EASIEST PIFCO SET TO FIND AND A LOVELY ADDITION TO YOUR FESTIVE DECORATIONS.

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.
