If you are looking for that very extra special heirloom quality gift for a long-time, valued employee, or a Financial Tombstone gift for an electrical or energy related customer -- this is the ultimate recognition gift! We are proud to present the Thomas Edison Antique Residential Electric Meter Lamp for your consideration.
This Edison-era, glass-domed, solid walnut lamp incorporates an original, beautifully-restored, generations-old, precision electrical instrument! This
exquisite high-end electric meter lamp would be a cherished retirement
gift, or a very much appreciated thank you gift for a job well done.
In restoring each antique residential electric meter, skilled craftsmen carefully removed over 80 years' accumulation of corrosion and grime to reveal the long-concealed, natural metallic luster of solid yellow machined brass and heavy red cast brass. These brass meter components are brilliantly polished and then immediately sealed in clear metal lacquer to preserve the finish.
Snap on the line cord switch and watch with fascination as this olden-times meter springs to life! A 15-watt reflector bulb draws its current through the meter circuit and bathes the slowly-rotating sparkling meter mechanism and dome interior in a soft, warm glow.
This Westinghouse Electric company type OB watt hour meter has been carefully restored to perfection!
Proudly restored and assembled in the USA!
Protective, removable Pyrex glass cover dome nestles into a felt-lined circular groove machined into the heavy walnut lamp base.
Matte-finish metal light bulb reflector is fully adjustable by means of a polished, solid brass swivel which is mounted to the meter by a polished, solid brass tube.
Jeweled mechanical meter movement for long operating life.
Optical-polishing of meter cover glass removes decades of accumulated scratches, haze, and embedded mineral stains, providing exceptional clarity for viewing the internal meter recording mechanism.
Included are three copper-wire, pressed lead wing nut security seals, just like the power company originally installed to thwart tampering. Pressed-lead seals are coated in clear metal lacquer to prevent oxidation.
Precision-cut, hand-finished, solid walnut woodwork.
Wedge-mounted interior brass plate is informatively engraved "Residential Electric Meter, Circa 1920".
Optional brass plate is affixed to the front of the lamp base with your 5 lines of text (55 characters per line) at no additional charge! Please fill out the form below with your special engraving.
