Item Description

Mid-20th Century Arm & Hammer Factory Trade Sign Lighting

A unique matched pair of metal mid-20th century Arm and Hammer factory trade sign lights.
These would have originally been placed outside the main factory gates of the Arm and Hammer factory in the USA. They are big and quirky, a real statement piece of lighting. With opaline glass shades in place and recently rewired to a UK 240v power output. One thing is for sure, you won’t find another similar pair.

History: 1840s. It was the start of something bigger than either of them knew, but in 1846 brothers-in-law Dr. Austin Church and John Dwight began preparing bicarbonate of soda for commercial distribution. They proudly packaged this simple, yet versatile product by hand into paper bags in their first factory in the USA.

Size in inches: H 30” x W 25” x D 9”
Units: Pair
Period: Mid-20th Century
Material: Alloy Metal
Origin: USA
Condition: Aged

Completely solid in structure and form, Natural patination across all the painted surface with some loss to detail as shown. The bakerite light holders are attached with a rubbery material to keep them in place. The fittings to the rear of the arms would go straight into 2 support screws on a wall (quite simple). They each weigh 10 kg so please be aware of the support needed to hold these lights. Recently rewired to a UK 240v output. These lights are ready to go. Its exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas in this piece, therefore we strongly suggest reviewing all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections are unclear to avoid disappointment.
