PRECISION ACE I try to avoid writing strictly technical articles in this blog since it is aimed at those who only have a casual interest in technical history.However, I recently obtained a little radio that is unusual enough that I wanted to provide some documentation for other collectors.As a result, some antique fixtures have multiple numbers, primarily used for internal use by the manufacturer.These numbers weren't usually recorded as serial numbers and aren't necessarily useful for identifying the fixture; however, they do help distinguish originals from reproductions.A wide variety of special light fixtures are created for use in the automotive lighting industry, aerospace, marine and medicine.Portable light fixtures are often called "lamps", as in table lamp or desk lamp.Fixture manufacturing began soon after production of the incandescent light bulb.
Fixtures may also have a switch to control the light.
Tucker has a BA and holds Ohio teaching credentials.
A light fixture (US English), light fitting (UK English), or luminaire is an electrical device used to create artificial light by use of an electric lamp.
Examine antique light fixtures in books, on the Internet and in local museums.
Compare your light fixture to others of the same variety.
