One of a kind industrial style, machine age wall sconce / key rack with storage bin. This wall mounted lamp was made from all reclaimed materials with the exception of a new socket and new vintage style cloth covered black twisted wire.

Backing is a piece of 1″ thick x 9″ wide reclaimed wood. Looks to be a piece of an old gate. Top portion has remains of a heavy steel hinge with nice patina, attached to the board with heavy lag bolts. Industrial lamp cage is thick cast iron with some numbers embossed on the front and was found at a garage sale locally. Unsure of what it’s original use was, but worked great as a surround for the vintage reproduction filament bulb. Vintage hooks are mounted below the lamp and a small tin storage bin finishes off the piece, mounted to the bottom.

This will make a nice piece for your hallway, living room, den or kitchen. Nice conversation piece and great way to store keys, mail, etc.

Comes with approx 6′ of vintage style cloth covered black twisted wire, with an inline switch and plugs directly into any wall outlet. Can also be hardwired and switched if desired.

Dimensions:
28″ high x 9″ wide

Repurposed Hub Cap Clocks

4 Dec

I’m in the process of restoring a 54 GMC pickup, and as anyone who’s ever taken on a similar project knows, you wind up with all kinds of extra parts. Some you can use and some you can’t. I’ll also buy anything I might use one day, but turns out, I ended up with multiple sets of extra hub caps that weren’t quite nice enough to use on the truck. So, I thought I’d turn some of them into clocks. Right now we have one Chevy and one GMC hub cap clock available. These are both from the early to mid-50s. Original chrome and patina. Both feature new quartz clock movements with simple straight hands and require one AA battery. Hang anywhere and perfect for your bar, man cave or make a nice accent piece anywhere. These two are available in our Etsy shop. DSCN1769
