Vintage Bakelite Light Switches (Each)

R60.00R126.00

I love the shape of these old bakelite light switches – to me they make much more sense than the sharp edged rectangular switches that we have in our houses today – more ergonomic for our hands! And their rounded shape is also visually quite beautiful, as are the materials used. Some of the switches are a bit more worn than others, and obviously there’s a mix of materials with some being bakelite throughout, and others a combo of bakelite and porcelain, but what they all have in common is that they’re in good working order – each of them having been tested and rewired where necessary by clever Justin!

P.S. Because of their age the switches do have some scratches, and the bakelite is a bit dull, most noticeably on the medium-sized bakelite switch. The different prices of the switches reflects both the condition of the switches as well as the various sizes
