Here is a vintage 1930s Mint in Original Box (including tissue paper) ART DECO Machine Age AEROLUX LAMP night light. The lamp is chrome with a black Bakelite handle. It measures approx. 3 in. tall. The box measures 6 1/2 in. I believe these are pretty hard to find in this condition in original packing. From what I was told this came from the attic of an old hardware store in St. Augustine, FL. and is new old stock. Appears to be in excellent working order. I did put a bulb in the lamp and the lamp worked. (No bulb is included).
There is no damage (except for pieces of one of the labels missing on the box as shown in the pictures). The original cord has not been uncoiled. This is a wonderful hard to find item.

Unusual Figural SPOOL CLOWN Bakelite Crib Toy Tykie Toy Co..

Here is a hard to find and unusual figural Spool clown crib toy doll which I believe was made by the Tykie Toy Co. in the 1930fs-40fs. I have only seen a couple of these in the 15 years that I have been collecting and selling Bakelite. The colors have changed due to the aging patina which has turned them into a soft butterscotch, cream corn, yellow, red, maroon, olive green and caramel colors. His body is thick and chunky and his neck ring is a bright red. His scallop shaped hat is maroon. This item was well loved as evidenced by the missing face paint, but his buttons remain. There are no chips or cracks. He could use a little cleaning though. He measures 5 1/2 in. not including the chain. Some of the earlier crib toys used chains to hook the on to the carriage or crib. A wonderful addition to any Bakelite, crib toy or baby items collection.
