ARVIN THE RUSTY ROBOT

With its heating days long behind it, this wonderfully rusted vintage 1940s Arvin electric heater was ready for some upcycle time in the studio. It has been thoroughly cleaned and sealed. All original electrical parts have been removed and discarded, saving the most interesting components which now serve as Arvin's "innards." This Robot lamp is art lighting that's perfect for the person who has eclectic taste.

INSIDE THE HEATER
Inside the heater are reclaimed vintage vacuum tubes that provide action behind the grate. A few color change, blink and remain steady. These NEW LEDs are designed to last for many years, so servicing burnt out or failed bulbs is a non-issue.
These bulbs are controlled by the master switch on the back panel.

OUTSIDE THE HEATER
On top there are blue "eyes"mounted on pivot pipe that allows for a little movement and adjustment. The red fabric covered cord is secured to the body via compression bushings and serves as the electrical supply for the eyes.
These bulbs are controlled by the same switch as the LEDs which located on the back panel.

HAT (TOP)
This is the original fan blade from inside the heater. It simply drops loosely into a pipe in the top and one may spin the blade by hand. The coil is a heating element from another vintage electric heater.

HANDS AND ARMS
Both arms are flexible and may be adjusted. In one hand Arvin holds a permanently mounted medium base socket with a 12" spiral filament bulb. In the other he holds the cord. This socket is hardwired into the heater and is controlled by a rotary dimmer switch on back panel.

The "eyes' and the "innards" can be turned off so the Edison bulb may be used alone as a lamp. You have options!

Over six feet of fabric covered grounded electric cord connect Arvin to the nearest outlet.

By the way, there's no danger here Will Robinson. All electrical parts are new, UL approved and safely secured. Although simple to maintain, bulb change instructions are included. The cover easily lifts off to access the internal tubes, but this maintenance may never be required.

Approximately 17"H x 17"W. All bulbs are included.

Shipping from United States

Due to the nature of my creations I will need a few extra days to package your purchase for shipment. Simpler creations will leave my studio faster than those that are larger or have an unusual shape or form.

I reuse shipping materials whenever possible, this includes boxes and dunnage. It's a small thing, but it does reduce shipping costs and lessen my impact on the environment.

**CHANGES AS OF APRIL 2013: We are now shipping exclusively FedEx. Under special circumstances I may also use insured USPS Parcel Select or Priority Mail.

If you need your purchase sooner, please use the Conversation button at the top of this page so we can make arrangements in advance. Keeping shipping costs low is a priority.

PURCHASES IN EXCESS OF 250.00 REQUIRE A SIGNATURE AT TIME OF DELIVERY. PLEASE BE AWARE SO SOMEONE IS PRESENT TO SIGN.

If you'd like to purchase more than one item, I will combine shipping if the items can be safely shipped in the same carton. I will refund any overpayment directly to your account on the day of shipping.

Currently I am only shipping within the United States.
