It has been a long time again since last post.
This time we like to highlight our items by Crabtree and its history.
We have several items by Crabtree and I googled the history of Crabtree and here is what I found:
J. A. Crabtree & Co was founded in 1919 by John Ashworth Crabtree. The company became one of Britain's leading manufacturers of electrical accessories, low voltage switchgear and motor control gear. In 1972, the company was acquired by the British Ever Ready Electrical Company, which was itself acquired by Hanson Trust in 1981. For many years the company was based at the Lincoln Works in Walsall, Staffordshire, which was closed in 1997.
Thanks to Wikipedia.
So many of our items fit right into the Art Deco period and beyond. Most of our items have already been sold, but here are some lovely switches that are still available at this moment in time.
