Rocket Fuel: Morning Liftoff!
This vintage percolator has made a convincing transition into a blasting pot of the proverbial "rocket fuel."
This old beauty has been thoroughly cleaned and amended with NEW UL recognized electrical components.
There's a medium base (standard household) socket in the base of the percolator that holds a neon flame/flicker bulb meant to simulate rocket fire.
Inside the perc there's a candelabra base socket with a 7 watt blinking red bulb which lights the old glass dome in the lid, simulating the burning tip of the rocket as it blasts through the atmosphere.
The melmac cup and saucer are suspended by wire that has been curled to simulate steam and hides the electric cord which supplies the 7 watt neon bulb in a new candelabra socket.
This lamp makes a great gift and is perfect for any home decor.
Approximately 16"H x 21"W (bottom to top of handle/outer edge of saucer to outer edge of wire to perc). All bulbs are included. Six feet of twisted fabric covered cord connect it to the nearest outlet. There is a new rotary switch mounted in the side of the coffee tin.
COFFEE TIN: True vintage coffee tin. It has some minor rust and scratches, but has been thoroughly cleaned and sealed.
NOTE: Look closely at the photos for imperfections. This is an upcycled creation made from objects that had former service lives. There may be scars and scratches in the finish. You are purchasing a bit of history that has been repurposed into a provocative piece of lamp art. THIS IS NOT A NEW LAMP.
THE CORD GOING INTO THE BASE OF THE PERCOLATOR POWERS THE PERC AND THE LIGHTS. THE VINTAGE PLUG IS JUST FOR SHOW, IS NOT POWERED AND DOES NOT PULL OUT. THE CORD SIMPLY RUNS THROUGH IT TO CREATE THE ILLUSION OF HOW THE PERCOLATOR LOOKED WHEN IT WAS NEW AND IN USE.
