Illuminated Weston Voltmeter
The Illuminated Voltmeter is a genuine early 1900s vintage antique repurposed to feature three dimmable Edison bulbs arranged in line at its top. A rotary knob rheostat switch controls the level of light, from quite bright to just barely visible.
The meter needle actually measures the amount of AC voltage being delivered to the bulbs, from zero to the typical 110-120V household current depending on how much the light is dimmed or brightened.
This object is quite unique; not many such instruments are still to be found. It is ideal for an office, den, bedroom, living room or bookcase. It casts a very warm candlelight-like color, and can be bright enough to read by.
The Illuminated Voltmeter is operated by two switches: a rotary knob adjusts brightness; another allows you momentarily measure voltage by pushing it, or to maintain constant monitoring by pushing and locking it with a clockwise turn.
The device measures 16" tall (with bulbs), 9.5" wide and 4" deep, and is made of wood with a touch of restorative finish to bring out its warm color. All electrical materials used are certified, and all connections are designed for safety and durability. The unit has been thoroughly tested for reliability.
