We picked up this 1930s Chrysler dashboard gauge cluster some time ago, as we liked the art-deco look of it. Inspiration finally hit when we took the innards out of a vintage clock and the box was sitting around – also with an art-deco look. The resulting lamp looks like a vintage radio – it is illuminated by a strip of LEDs that shine through a gap at the top of the gauge cluster, where it would originally have been illluminated. A marriage made in heaven!
Size 13″ x 6″ x 8″ ( 33 cm x 15 cm x 20 cm)
All electrical components are new. The LEDs are DC powered and are rated to last 50,000 hours – that’s about 6 years of continuous use.
