2-40's Cobalt Blue 7 3/4 Gooseneck Porcelain Sign Light Gas Station Abolite VTG. Circa 1940's Abolite sign or angle lights. The sockets and socket holders, (fitters) are new old stock, (NOS), same vintage, and wired for the first time ever.
The shades are have obviously been on the job for quite some time and keep it no secret. Plenty of patina to be shared, most notably on the rims, and most predominately on one.
The goosenecks are hand-produced by a retired electrician in West Virginia, NOBODY does it better! I'm not sure how he does it but they are all identical. From the wall to the center of the light is 18 inches. These goosenecks are extremely strong.
The wall mounts include gaskets and screws. The sockets and fitters are from the same time period as the shades and are the correct fitters. These fitters were found in an equipment room quite some time ago and have been patiently waiting for just the right shades to pair up with. I added a ground for extra safety, Pass Your Inspections!! Back when these lights were manufactured, blue porcelain shades were far more expensive to produce than their white or green counterparts, thus they cost substantially more.So much more in fact, people rarely bought them. This resulted in fewer being produced, fewer surviving and higher cost for the ones that did.
I will include the wire-nuts, might save you a trip to the hardware store. All electrical items should be checked and installed by a professional electrician. I'm a very fast and careful shipper.These lights will be packed very well. Thank you for visiting the original.
