RARE 1920s light bulb display piece used in hardware stores to display and sell GE National "Mazda" brand light bulbs. The name has nothing to to with the car---Mazda was an ancient god of light. Maxfield Parrish did the print ads and advertising calendar art for Mazda for years and years. Litho-printed design on metal on both sides of the piece with wooden base. Gold letter on each side says "National Mazda Lamps". Each bulb has an on/off switch and even has very old price and description tags. New wiring. Reverse side shows wear on the artwork. If you collect antique bulbs, this is a must have for display!!
28ʺW × 6ʺD × 13ʺL
Bulbs shown are incandescent reproduction bulbs from the 1910s. If using with incandescent bulbs, it's recommended to use 25 watt bulbs and/or use a lamp dimmer. Looks best with bulbs only glowing due to excessive heat and brightness.
